BonaVista Pools earns gold and two bronzes at the 2014 Design and Construction Awards — Backyard dreams become reality for GTA families —
January 5, 2015, Toronto, ON – BonaVista Pools www.bonavistapools.com wins top honor at the 2014 Design and Construction Awards hosted by the Pool and Hot Tub Council of Canada in these three categories: residential outdoor self-contained spa or portable hot tub – gold, concrete hot tub and pool combination – bronze and swim spa/current pool – bronze.
The gold medal project started with a client Paul Boniferro who wanted to make better use of his rooftop space to enjoy a quiet tree top retreat to entertain and relax with friends. Inspired by the natural North Toronto surroundings near Sunnybrook, he wanted a luxurious outdoor space that he could enjoy all four seasons and that was an extension of his indoor living areas.
“The transformation was remarkable. I was able to fit all my ‘must have’ items; hot tub, barbeque, outdoor bar, TV, shower and outdoor lounge, into a small, 800 square foot roof top space. My roof top is now a luxurious retreat which I can enjoy all year round”, says the homeowner.
This gold winning project includes products/services from Bonavista Pools www.bonavistapools.com including: a Hydropool Self Cleaning hot tub http://www.hydropoolhottubs.com , a Lynx barbeque and outdoor fridge which sets the stage for the ultimate outdoor entertaining space. The overall concept/design by Scott McCuaig at Eden Tree Design Inc. http://edentreedesign.com includes: • Custom woodwork and outdoor bar by Claude Spethmann • Outdoor shower • Green roof and planting by Skyspace Green Roofs http://www.skyspacegreenroofs.com • All-weather flatscreen TV and sound, by Sound Environments http://www.sound-environments.com • Plantings by Hollander Landscaping http://www.hollanderlandscaping.com • Lighting and irrigation by Rain Gods http://www.raingods.ca
BonaVista Pools received the coveted gold title based on the following criteria: design, building process, complexity, creativity, quality, lot size, and landscaping. The judging focused on pools and hot tub projects built in the past four years. The aesthetic features of the installation included decking, landscaping and/or other amenities that are clearly part of the environment. Submissions were only accepted if the project had not won a gold, silver or bronze award in the past four years.
“This project was a collaborative effort. BonaVista is fortunate to work with some of the finest landscape designers and architects in Toronto, allowing us to help bring our clients’ vision to life. We worked together as a team to deliver the home owner their dream outdoor space,” said Jennifer Gannon from BonaVista Pools.
The roof top oasis blends beautifully into the Sunnybrook landscape. The use of natural ipe wood from Brazil and placement of hot tub, shower and lounging areas tucked nicely into the corner of the rooftop maximizes privacy for the owner. Boniferro wanted a private space where he could relax in the evenings or gather with family and friends to entertain and enjoy the outdoors.
