The owner of this home approached Kane Brothers with an inspiring challenge: create a chemical free swimming environment for him and his family that would allow him to swim with his children who suffered from severe skin conditions.
Maintaining the sanitary pristine water quality of a swimming pool, while adding the demands of a ecological habitat, required a custom pond design that utilized an elaborate filtration system. Largely utilizing biological methods to reinforce the designed ecosystem, this natural swimming pool offers aesthetics and utility beyond a standard pool without any chemicals, harmful additives, or irritants.
The project was completed in two phases – the first including the pond and two cascading waterfalls, and the second to incorporate a large meandering stream throughout the landscape. Over 100 tons of boulders were used throughout the feature. The 90-foot stream originates just off the master bedroom terrace, such that the sound of flowing water can soothe the homeowners to sleep.
