NIVEKO Pool Completes Stunning Dorset Home This impressive residence in Dorset, built in a typical style for the county, is the home of the Turner family. With extensive grounds which are complemented by stunning and far-reaching views, the peace and quiet of the countryside surrounding the house is ideal for active relaxation. The young family had a number of ideas for how best to enjoy their leisure time but top of the list was a new swimming pool. Enter Wiltshire-based Rock Pools and Spas who were the team responsible for adding this striking one-piece swimming pool to the Turner’s garden. “We heard about NIVEKO pools from Martin Pelling from Rock Pools and Spas, which is a partner of Certikin International, the official supplier of NIVEKO pools in Great Britain. We had our own idea of the sort of pool we wanted to get. Swimming is an active way of relaxing for us and our children love splashing around in the water… so we opted for a NIVEKO Skimmer Top Level pool, which certainly lived up to our expectations. We

chose a grey colour, which looks very natural and gives the pool a modern look. Martin was amazing, all the time from our initial talks until the pool was finally installed, explaining everything to us and immediately dealing with any problems that cropped up. We love our pool, it was a great investment.”

facilities – with an expanded swimming pool area plus the introduction of a Himalayan salt sauna, laconium, steam room, ice fountain and thermal showers. Ceramique Internationale worked alongside CS Hotels, the owner’s management team, and with hotel and leisure interior design experts Curveline Design on the resort’s renovation, specifying tiles from two of Europe’s finest manufacturers – Italian company Casalgrande Padana and Spanish mosaic expert Vidrepur – to be used in the health club and the new loft suites. Casalgrande’s

Dragon Black tile was selected for the pool surround and on the floors of the wider spa area, with both spaces taking advantage of the tile’s grip finish, which provides anti-slip qualities. The Italian manufacturer’s large-format Loft Nero 600x600mm tile was also chosen for the bathroom floors of the resort’s new suites, accompanied by Vidrepur’s Aura Black tile, to create a feature

wall within the shower area. David Longbottom, Specification Sales Manager at Ceramique Internationale, said: “Our long-term working partnership with Curveline means we’ve had the opportunity to work on some of the countries finest resorts and hotels, and Formby Hall is the latest one. We recognised that a project of this stature required the highest quality tiles so we used our contacts at some of Europe’s finest manufacturers to source them, and the whole team is overjoyed with the finished look.” Ceramique Internationale Ltd 0113 231 0218 www.tilesandmosaics.co.uk
