Natural Pool Over Lake Lucerne


Two aspects were very important for the owners: to include existing elements in the new garden concept, such as the backdrop of trees, a venerable old apple tree, established perennial beds and the garden paths, and to maintain the harmony of the complete garden and enhance it further. The embankment was supported with walls of natural rock to create a new level for the natural pool. The swimming area is enclosed by a long curved wall, derived from the soft contours of the slope. Sun- decks on the ends of the swimming area provide enough resting and active areas for each family member. Stepping stones made of porphyry with a quarry-rough surface lead over a gravel dam, which separates the regeneration zone from the plant filter. Instead of a ladder, a platform tiled with porphyry constitutes the entrance to the pool. At the shore the natural rocks in a variety of sizes complete the picture of the classic, perfectly designed natural pool.
