Dazzling Swimming Pool Replica of an 18th Century Stradivarius Violin

Cipriano Landscape Design & Custom Swimming Pools completed a violin-shaped swimming pool for a client who wanted an exact replica in scale of a 1700’s era Stradivarius violin with all of its detail and intricacies. All of the violin attributes were accounted for including purlflings, f-holes, a bridge, strings, a tailpiece, and a chin rest! Although this project reminded us of the Les Paul Guitar-inspired swimming pool, the level of complexity is higher in this case.

Some of the features of the Stradivarius-shaped pool include a 12-person perimeter overflow spa, with independent LED lighting, koi-ponds, built to resemble the “bow” of the violin, outfitted with 250 fiber optic star-lights, nearly half a million translucent glass tiles designed with a unique 4-way gradient pattern, fiber optic rope lighting detail that illuminates the entire periphery of the pool. Moreover, the violin strings represented by 5760 strands of fiber optic lighting, glow at night and can be synchronized with music playing externally. Wireless technology allows the homeowner to adjust any pool settings and landscape utilities directly from an iPhone, while an audio system makes listening to music possible underwater.
