"Once owned by film actress Greta Garbo, my Beverly Hills home has a lot of history and an outstanding view of Los Angeles. While remodeling, I wanted to add a pool, but it was tricky since my house is on a hillside. It was almost straight up and down, and many pool builders shied away from it. Owner David Tisherman, however, knew the history of the house and was excited to do the project.
I like David. He is so personable and creative. He became like a member of the family by the time he completed the project.
His idea was different than what anyone would envision. He wanted to make it look like the house was sitting on water, and he did. I knew I wanted an infinity-edge pool to look out on the incredible view, but I never thought it would be possible to bring it up against the house. It was such a cool visual. We put earthy colored mosaic tile along the edge of the pool and into the trough. It is stunning!
It was an extremely challenging pool due to the hillside construction as well as the site and existing soil conditions. But you can see, it was well worth the challenge."
