To keep up with Albatross Pools, keep up with Melbourne Pool + Outdoor Design Magazine. We put a featured project into every edition. It’s a way for us to showcase some of our most exciting work and show off what we can accomplish quickly and affordably for our clients. We’ve been designing and building steel framed, Aqualux membrane pools for the Melbourne-area market for almost half a century. Over all those years, we’ve continually reviewed our existing work and looked for ways to make our pools more beautiful, more durable, easier to maintain and quicker to build. Now, as one of Melbourne’s leading pool companies, we are setting the standard that others aspire to.
Melbourne Pool + Outdoor Design Magazine
If you’re a Melbourne-area pool designer or landscape designer, then you already know about Melbourne Pool + Outdoor Design Magazine. It’s our local industry publication; a magazine for landscape design aficionados and pool nerds like ourselves. It’s a way for manufacturers and sellers of pools, spas and the related systems and accessories — and people and companies who specialise in the landscaping around them — to advertise their products and put their best work out there for colleagues and customers to see.
Of course, everyone in the industry reads it: architects, home designers, landscape designers and landscape architects. People who are thinking about installing a pool should buy a few copies, as well; it has the kind of insider information that can be really helpful in making confident, well informed choices.
Some of Our Featured Projects
Unfortunately, Melbourne Pool + Outdoor Design Magazine does not keep old articles online, so you can’t reference all of our featured projects. However, here’s our newest feature. It’s gives all the details on a beautiful, modern pool that’s part of an overall outdoor sports area for an active family. It’s a really striking design, with a dark, ‘Bahama’ pool interior and a simple, elegant stone tile surround. It’s easy to see how attractive this pool is, but it’s got an unexpected feature, too: it doubles as a spa. It has a padded bench along one side, and spa jets to massage sore backs, necks, arms and legs. So, it can be used for games, lap swimming, relaxation and rehabilitation.
It’s certainly a good looking and multi-fictional pool, but that’s not all there was to the project. As you can see in the photo, the pool is adjacent to an outbuilding with a small gym and an alfresco area with table tennis. There’s even netball, basketball and a putt putt course. Even the most reluctant athlete could spend hours playing sports and swimming in this fantastic space. We designed this ourselves, and we’re proud of both the look and the layout. It reflects the simple, modern design of our client’s house, and what a great place for a party or for pure family fun!
