Here at Falling Waters and with our pool partners we were able to build a pool within another pool. Why might you ask did we do such a thing? Well… the shape and style of many pools in the residential areas of California can easily date a house. Many of our clients come to us with their existing pools and want us to remodel them into modern, timeless features in their yards. Usually with enough square footage in a yard we are able to demolish the old pool and start a new design. But with our new project in Del Mar the pool takes up about 70% of the usable space in the backyard. With this challenge and the clients’ desire to not only modernize their yard but expand their usable space we suggested recycling the existing walls of the pool and infilling parts to create a smaller more manageable pool inside. With a little more configuration and tweaks to the engineering we were able to successfully accomplish this.

This is a big hurdle to jump at the beginning of the project, but we are slowly navigating the process and are ready to move on to the other details, aka one of our favorites: the concrete pours!!

If you have any questions about this process, or why we choose to do shotcrete pools instead of gunite, DM us on Instagram and we would love to discuss.
