To find the perfect shade of ocean blue, the design team tested more than 20 different tile colors, creating mockups and submersing the samples in water at various times of day. (Tile by Lightstreams in San Francisco)


Infinite Tranquility

La Jolla

Details
10,000 gallons
6 feet deep
Glass-tile bottom
Rim-flow edge

The house is owned by former San Diego Padre Chris Young, who is 6’10” tall. The designers made the spa 10 inches deeper than usual to accommodate his height. The jets are laid out specifically for therapeutic purposes.

The owners chose patio furniture by the ultra-high-end McKinnon and Harris. The aluminum powder-coated frames are designed to withstand all types of weather.

Added bonus: The spa doubles as a fountain when not in use.
