Vanishing edge pools.

Pools. Vanishing edge pools, spas by  Jerry Jacobs Design. Pool houses and Loggias.

Vanishing Edge pools, opposing mirrors, spiral staircases are all subject to ad infinitum. It is not the Object or its use but what it conveys to your mind.

I have always been fascinated with what is at the end. Where is the end? Is there an end? Endless and ahead, a road hard to complete. I have always been intrigued on where do the “Stairways to Heaven” lead to? Or where is the horizon, actually, the world keeps turning.

The Art of the pool.

Architecture and Interior Design as does music, poetry,  film or other Arts can convey the meaning or the feeling of “Infinity”, “Eternity” or “Endless”, in some ways; or another dimension. If the purpose is to entertain, or is the purpose  simply to extend the perspective of the mind through the eye?

Arts work also in tandem with the Architecture or Interior Design of the space.

And then those which we have had a chance to design objects of Architecture or Interiors such  Vanishing Edge Pools, Opposing Mirrors, spiral staircases have noticed something similar happening there.

In the case of the Vanishing Edge Pools, the eye is telling certain points of perspective the there is no end to the pool, that it is actually part of the sea, or the horizon, and in the Opposing mirrors, we don’t really know if we are here or there, or is there another dimension. Who knows, who cares, I just care for the Art. The way in which an image or a space can not only fool the eye as in Tromp-l’oeil, but the mind as if we were really somewhere else. Just a dream.

Hacienda on the Beach.

At the Hacienda on the Beach, it was an easy choice. The beauty of the Caribbean Ocean, drags you in just like the song of the Siren.

Townhouse with a master bedroom Vanishing edge Spa.

At Townhouse “F”, when we joined the two level penthouse to the lower level unit, the terrace formerly adjacent to the living room, became the Master Bedroom Terrace.

Therefore we thought a Spa would be nice for the Master Bedroom. Why not make it a Vanishing Edge Spa. Finally why not have the water overflow on two sides at a corner rather than only one.

If design comes with opportunities to transport the mind, then why not do so?
