A multi-award winning design milestone

With his signature flair and technical expertise, Steve Taylor of COS Design provided a truly breathtaking solution for the owners of this modern, Melbourne home with incredible views of Port Phillip Bay.

With 17m from street to door and a vertical drop of 5.1m, the space has been extensively terraced, placing the pool as a central part of the guest entrance experience with the incorporation of a large acrylic window. The views of the pool from the balcony above are equally amazing, particularly as the spa doubles as a night-time reflection pond.

His discerning clients having the highest expectations, Steve and his team concluded that only the very highest quality mosaic would do justice to the beautiful pool and spa, specifying Bisazza Gemme mosaic (GM20.77) for the spa and Bisazza Vetricolor (VTC 20.56) for the pool.

Steve commented, “the choice of material for the pool and spa was critical, especially with the large window in the pool making everything so much more visible. We wanted something that feels special and the aesthetic qualities of the Bisazza mosaic helped us to achieve the perfect look.”

Perhaps not surprisingly, the project has been recognised by a string of awards from AILDM (The Australian Institute of Landscape Designers and Managers), HIA (The Housing Industry Association) and Landscaping Victoria.
