Designers of bespoke eco-friendly pools


Every year, a competition is held to choose our customers' most attractive build. The Piscinelle Gold award winners presented below showcase our customers' talent for pushing the envelope and creating uniquely evocative aesthetics. This award also gives Piscinelle employees the opportunity to celebrate diversity, as its primary focus is on how elements are blended seamlessly with their surroundings subsequent to their initial design.

2018 Piscinelle Gold award

2018 Piscinelle Gold award - A poolside getaway

A poolside getaway … this phrase neatly summarises our feelings about this Piscinelle pool. This image taken in the middle of the garrigue evokes moments of exceptional peace and quiet. You can feel everything in this photo … the warm caress of the midday sun, the scent of lavender in the air, delicious smells emanating from a dinner table packed with friends enjoying a lunch of garlic mayonnaise and goat's cheese produced by the nearby farm … you can almost hear the bees gathering pollen and making honey for you as you take a well-earned nap after a hearty lunch … we'll leave you to choose between the bliss of a hammock or deckchair!

This simple and elegant Piscinelle pool stood out for its understated modernity. The vast expanse of genuine ipe wood with its natural shades of grey provides a luxurious sheen with silvery reflections that are easy on visitors' eyes. This classic pool is a slightly elongated rectangle tending towards a lap pool. Its slate grey liner gives it the feel of a natural pool and is perfectly coordinated with the surrounding decks. This build nestled in greenery is a worthy winner of the 2017 Piscinelle Gold award!

2016 Piscinelle Gold award - An innovative, contemporary pool with Rolling-Deck - the new generation of intelligently designed mobile decks.

As if installed on a huge carpet combining thousands of shades of green, this Piscinelle pool is hypnotic with its changing water colour and reflections from the shifting skies above giving a unique sense of depth. Equipped with a Rolling-Deck, this pool set-up makes complete sense, while also exuding the type of simple elegance that we adore. This is an eco-pool both in terms of its water management and the materials used to make it, and was a worthy winner of the 2016 Piscinelle Gold award for its pioneering spirit and overall design.

2015 Piscinelle Gold award

2015 Piscinelle Gold award - Eco-pool surrounded by woodland with a highly contemporary feel due to its unobtrusive pit-mounted slatted cover and bright red furniture.Nestled among trees offering their benevolent protection and bathed in bright light due to almost translucent foliage ... that's the 2015 Piscinelle Gold award winner. It is a true eco-designer pool due to its ability to blend with this leafy setting and delight us with a bucolic play of light that sparkles on petrol blue water. The contemporary, bright-red outdoor furniture modernises the scene, immersing us in the 21st century. We found this juxtaposition both pleasing and fascinating.
