Weintraub Pool and Water Feature

Scott Cohen says:

"When the Weintraubs bought this house, they knew the backyard would have to be completely redone.  Although contemporary for the time it was built in the 1970s, in the present time it felt more like 'Star Wars'.  The home-owners wanted a fire feature, waterfalls and an outdoor kitchen.   Bruce Weintraub was very involved in the selection of unique materials to capture the look he was after, working closely with me on the general layout and structural details. Together we created a contemporary showplace complete with fireplace, outdoor kitchen, polished stone counters, walk-across-water features, and stainless steel sheer cascades.  The pool is plastered in a mix of blue and black 3M Colorquartz with a white plaster base.  Black glass tiles with an iridescent quality accent the waterline and blend beautifully with the slate coping. Mr. Weintraub found a terrific stainless steel tile that we used on the outdoor kitchen backsplash and on a recessed panel in the counter walls.  The stainless steel tied in perfectly with the steel weirs that spill from the spa and back of the pool."
