Coral Gables Pool


We had the challenge of adding a pool to a beautiful tropical garden of of a 1924 Mediterranean Style house on the outside, but modern and minimal on the inside.  In order to work with both styles we chose the frm of a Fibonacci Rectangle -- which involves more math than you want to know, but creates the most pleasing shape to the eye and is at the same time, minimal and harmonious with the 1920s style.  The result is a swimming pool that looks as if it has been there for more than 80 years.

There is a shallow end that is only 18 inches deep that doubles as a perfect kiddy pool -- without division to the rest of the pool -- as well as a lounging area for adults.  The secret is to find a balance between working with what you and what you want.
