Contemporary Pools

A contemporary swimming pool is defined by its strict simplicity, clean lines, right angles, square coping, and the feeling of “less is more.” The contemporary theme is designed into the pool, spa, landscaping, and structures. All have the same clean lines and the goal of elegant simplicity. A contemporary pool and backyard design may include pilasters, columns, geometric designs, and a modern sensibility. A current trend in contemporary pool design is the negative edge/infinity pool and the perimeter overflow pool. Both of these pool styles create a “wet edge”, which is a visual effect of the pool’s perimeter vanishing or extending to “infinity.”
