Swimming Pool & Spa Design
Our design philosophy is that the aquatic environment is an extension of its setting and reflects the character of its owners. Our designs are comprehensive and intuitive in nature, encompassing everything from pool and spa structures – naturalistic, freeform and linear pools with design elements such as: grotto waterfalls, vanishing edge, perimeter overflow, etc. – to landscaping – drought tolerant native plantings, xeriscapes and water conservation – to outdoor living amenities – pool houses, outdoor kitchens, fire pits, cabanas and arbors. Our clients will find that the design process is relaxed and creative, while remaining purposeful and site sensitive.
Our company's owner, Gary Westbrook, has designed hundreds of pools over the last twenty years, including the personal outdoor escapes of some of Austin's most prominent architects and builders. Our versatility can cover any architectural style, all types of topography and space constraints, and even complex multi-level designs. "The greater the challenge, the greater the opportunity for an imaginative response."
Highest Quality Materials
We match our high quality & unique swimming pool designs with the best materials available on the market. As with any lasting architectural feat, careful consideration has gone into choosing our construction materials.
There are many examples which set Aquatic Ideas apart from others. Just one such example is that our stones are pre-cut, pre-honed, and pre-sanded at the quarry and delivered to the site ready for construction. Not only does this make for a faster installation, but it also means that you will have reduced noise pollution, dust & debris on your property. Additionally, you'll receive a more precisely finished and better looking product.
Uncompromising Construction Methods
Our construction philosophy is that the building process is the execution and realization of the designer's vision in its entirety as illustrated in the design. In order to achieve that end, there needs to be accurate interpretation, thoughtful preparation, planning, and personal supervision.
Our swimming pool construction methods are uncompromising. In an age of budget-conscious construction, we dare build with methods that go beyond industry standards. We adhere to the philosophy of engineering for worst-case conditions rather than hoping for the best. Not only do we not cut corners, but we will even look for ways to engineer a better, stronger, and longer-lasting structure even if it costs us more money.
Why go the extra mile? Our pools are our legacy. We give everything we have to our projects to ensure that your masterfully designed outdoor living space will last your family for generations.
