Complete Outdoor Specialists
Cipriano Custom Swimming Pools & Landscaping offers a special kind of service portfolio for prospective clients: the company provides a complete suite of design and construction services for luxurious outdoor makeovers in one award-winning company. Creating a business like this takes years of experience to obtain the consistency and depth of staff required. Custom water feature fabrication, glass tile installation, masonry, landscaping, and lighting each demand skilled talent. Cipriano’s ability to handle in-house every aspect of a project from the design stage to the completion of construction is incredibly convenient and cost-effective for the client. “We create a direct relationship and seamless communication flow with our clients,” says Chris Cipriano, owner. “This is what differentiates us from a majority of the other pool builders not only in our region, but also throughout the country.”
The violin pool featured here, constructed in Bedford, N.Y., is a project that required all of Cipriano’s skillsets. It was an extremely complex project that demanded a lot of expert problem-solving and unique construction techniques. The end result is a beautiful outdoor space and a very satisfied client. The violin pool has won two national awards, including a 2014 Pinnacle Awards from Luxury Pools as one of the best luxury swimming pool projects in the country this year.
The pool is a replica of the 1700s-era Stradivarius violin with all of its intricacies. The Cipriano team of landscape architects worked extensively with Oceanside Glasstile to create a custom four-way gradient blend, and Cipriano’s tile division masterfully installed the nearly 500,000 individual pieces of tile to recreate the violin image and coloration. The 5,600 fiber-optic strands woven in between the glass tiles create the glowing strings of the violin. Two attached Koi ponds make up the bow of the violin, which intersects the pool and can be seen through underwater acrylic panels within the pool. The masonry around the pool boasts natural stone patios with custom inlays and borders, as well as a luxurious outdoor kitchen and bar. Landscaping features include a sinuous boxwood hedge design with beautiful flowers blooming off of it as well as many specimen trees from Cipriano’s own tree farm.
Projects like the violin pool showcase what Cipriano can offer a client. The company understands how important and stressful a pool installation and property design can be and have modeled their company in the best way possible to ease the client throughout the process to ensure their complete satisfaction. The result is a convenient process for the client and a superior product that lasts for years to come.
In 2013 the company was named to a major industry magazine’s national list of the “Top 50 Builders” and received a gold award for glass tile installation from the Association of Pool & Spa Professionals.
