Expressed joint creates striking pool feature wall for Melbourne home
16 March 2020
We believe in design as self-expression; a sentiment evidently shared by this modern Melbourne home. With its vast design and applicational versatility, VogueWall provided the perfect blank canvas to create their striking pool feature wall; complete with a bold paint finish and our architectural expressed joint feature.
Masonry alternative for pool feature wall
Featuring solid, pier-like posts and smooth, cementitious panels, VogueWall delivers a versatile masonry alternative that has been a popular choice for those wanting to emulate the premium look of a rendered brick wall. Whilst visually similar to traditional masonry, it is far more lightweight, overcoming the usual weight restrictions along pool boundaries.
Furthermore, the construction of a modular wall system saves substantial time, costs and efficiency. They are installed in 4 easy steps (dig holes, concrete posts into ground, slide in panels, finish as desired) and negate the need for wide strip footings, extensive digging or cumbersome machinery. In addition, this saves ample construction time; in fact, one case study showed a whopping 75% reduction in install time, compared to rendered masonry. Subsequently, this can also deliver dramatic savings on labour costs!
Expressed joint feature
Some customers try to minimise the panel join line; however, our expressed joint option transforms it into an architectural feature. This design detail gave the pool feature wall a distinct lineal structure; a feature that created an integral focal point and accentuated the straight lines of the pool coping and paving design.
Combined with Flush post tops, Flush wall capping and dramatic paint choice, the final pool wall design was clean, sharp and highly contemporary.
