Swimming pools have evolved. They are more than just functional municipal venues, they are now carefully curated lifestyle experiences.
The hotel, hospitality, leisure, health and wellness industries have transformed the market, demanding engaging and sophisticated spaces.
Likewise, for the private home or the modern residential apartment with shared leisure facilities, contemporary pool design has advanced significantly utilising superior quality materials and creative specifications.
Domus has over 50 years of experience with swimming pool design providing products for all areas of the project, particularly for the wet areas, spas and wellness areas, changing rooms and showers.
Domus can provide CAD drawings and M40 NBS specifications plus technical advice regarding screeds, pool tank renders and waterproofing with our specialist partner, Mapei.
Porcelain is the principle material specified and includes tiles for the pool deck and surrounds, edges, drainage gullies and gratings, steps and pool-tank.
Porcelain tiles are a high performance, technically superior product, available in slip resistance finishes suitable for wet areas and bare feet. It is highly fit for purpose, non-porous and impervious to water. Stain and chemical resistant, and easy to clean, this material requires no sealing or maintenance.
Porcelain ensures high standards of hygiene are met and with the inclusion of large format lightweight slabs, fewer grout joints are created.
