For centuries, decorative water features have been a staple in human society, valued as a means of relaxation and entertainment, and as symbols of power and prestige. Flowing water instills in us a reassuring mixture of both calm and excitement while never failing to impress, regardless of the form it takes. From extravagant programmed shows to a simple series of jets arching into a pool, water features add a sumptuous comfort to any space, especially when coupled with the appropriate lighting.
Decorative fountains also provide the ideal solution to livening up a walkway or garden. Cheshire Private Residence is the perfect example of how a simple animated body of water can add a significant level of cachet to an outdoor space. The rectangular basin is staged with a series of plume and cascade jets laid out in an elegant symmetrical design, with enticing color changing LED up-lighting to accommodate around the clock use. On top of the value added to the property, the design and feature has taken home both a SPATA and UK Pool and Spa Award. Competing with entries from around the globe, the project was recognized as a leading example of construction, quality, design, and innovation in the residential domain. Crystal was honoured to support Portrait Pools in the implementation of this venture, as it stands as a testament that stunning water features need not be reserved solely for enjoyment in the commercial sphere.
