A swimming pool is also a landscaping element that can add elegance and originality to an area so this project offers us an exact replica in scale of a 1700s Stradivarius violin with all its details and intricacies such as the chords or cut-ins.

Created by the Cipriano Landscape Design studio in collaboration with Custom Swimming Pools, the project includes all the attributes of the model such as the purlflings, f-holes, the bridge, strings, tailpiece and even a chin rest on the edge.

The swimming pool is quite functional offering a perimeter overflow spa for up to 12 persons, independent LED illumination, so that it can be admired during nighttime as well, and there are koi-ponds resembling the bow of the violin with 250 fiber optic star-lights.

There are a lot of glass tiles illuminating the periphery of the pool and the violin strings are illuminated by no less than 5760 strands of fiber optic which can be synchronized with the music playing. There is an audio system making it possible to listen to music underwater and the pool settings as well as landscape utilities can be configured via an iPhone.
