Aquatic environments are uniquely challenging, balancing air quality and access to natural light with the functional and safety requirements associated with swimming pools. By staying in touch and following up clients of previous aquatic projects, I have gained valuable insight into what works and what does not and how best to avoid the innumerable ‘traps’ that come with these projects.
