The owners of this luxury property in Kensington wanted to expand their home with a comfortable leisure space for exercise, relaxation and entertainment.

Situated in the heart of London, where space is at a premium, the area available for development was located on the third level below ground and required a 25 metre excavation.

The project involved working in challenging site conditions and to tight, precise schedules.

London Swimming Pool Company designed a pool with a moving floor that can be set at different levels in the water, from full depth for adult swimming to shallow for young children to play and splash.

The floor can be completely raised to provide a large floor space for parties, dancing and other activities.

The pool was manufactured in 4m lengths and transferred to the basement area through a narrow opening. Added to this challenge was the need to cut each individual tile on the pool floor so that it matched with the surrounding area when the floor was raised.

The understated internal pool finishes, in shades of cream, are made to come alive with a row of contrasting white and colour-changing underwater LED lights.

A dry bonded black slate wall adds interest and texture along one side of the pool and is replicated on the opposite wall as a backdrop to the spa.

The custom-made spa features six hydrotherapy jets and six calf massage jets and is finished with black and silver Italian mosaic to match the elegant colour scheme of the area.

The property won the LABC Award for Best Individual Dwelling 2012 and the pool and spa project inspired a large amount of interest when we exhibited at the recent Grand Designs Live in Excel Docklands.

The pool and spa area befits an exclusive, unique property such as this, which has five ensuite bedrooms and two reception rooms. 

The project was awarded a SPATA 203 Gold award in the category of Inground Domestic Spas and Health Pools, as well as a Bronze award in the competitive category of Residential Indoor Pools over £175,000.
