The 2014 Pinnacle Awards Winners
Luxury Pools magazine is proud to announce the winners of the 2014 Pinnacle Awards. Only three companies merited the honor, earning the symbol that separates these craftsmen from all others. The pool designers and pool builders were judged by a distinguished panel of five industry experts who used the criteria of functionality, structural engineering and hydraulics, landscape architecture, and appearance. The honored projects truly exceed the general level of professionalism and creativity in the industry.

This whimsical pool is a state-of-the-art masterpiece that has controls for the pool, spa, landscape, music, water features and lighting.
