Chris Cipriano and Cipriano Custom Swimming Pools and Landscaping of Mahwah, NJ are the featured articles in the Spring 2011 issue of Luxury Pools Magazine. On the front pages of the biennial magazine, Luxury Pool Magazine, which showcases some of the world’s most talented luxury pool manufacturers, dedicates a three-page spread to the New Jersey design and builder. In this profile, Cipriano highlights some of his industry knowledge, gives readers an in-depth look at some pools, and outlines the importance of designing a swimming pool and landscape as a whole to find balance in outdoor living space.

The Builder Profile focuses primarily on the design process and creativity used to not only balance the aesthetics of a scene, but also to align the homeowner’s lifestyle and goals with the realistic constraints of the property. The story continues by outlining three brief instances where Cipriano Custom Swimming Pools and Landscaping used thorough planning, preparation, creativity and skill to provide homeowners with luxurious swimming pools and landscaping.

First, on a small property in Ridgewood, NJ, the pool was on a floodplain and required privacy from nearby neighbors. These challenges, along with the homeowners’ lifestyle of relaxation and entertainment, were the primary focus of licensed landscape architect Bill Moore. Bill came up with the idea for a 215 square foot plunge pool with a raised rim to prevent flood water from entering the pool and a decorative barrier wall along the back of the pool for privacy. The outdoor living space is simultaneously the perfect setting for a dinner party and an elegant retreat for relaxation, perfect for the private lifestyle of the homeowner.

The profile then describes a swimming pool project in Saddle River, NJ that dealt with strict municipal codes and a steeply sloping lot with a 26-foot elevation change. Cipriano’s creativity took on these challenges, creating a two-tiered design with waterfalls cascading into the swimming pool and a natural vanishing edge that flows down to a pool at the dining patio level. The falls drown out the noise of a nearby freeway. The upper terrace offers space for relaxing around the pool. The lower dining terrace includes an outdoor kitchen and plenty of space to entertain guests.

The final luxury pool’s goals were to emphasize stunning views over an NJ valley and provide plenty of space for entertaining and relaxation. From relocating the pool to allow for a view from a different window, to installing glass tiles and applying around 200 intricate fiber optic light sticks to the pool, Cipriano has a proven track record of adapting to the changes as the project continued to grow . The result was a lavish limestone patio, outdoor kitchen and BBQ, and roman-ended swimming pool with glass tile mosaic designs, fiber optic star lights, fiber optic deck jets, and a glass tile infinity edge to frame the majestic view.

In general, these three cases outline the profile of the luxury pool, denoting a clear balance between creative, imaginative design and quality, expert construction. Each of the award-winning pools and landscapes demonstrates the ability to completely satisfy the homeowner as well as the outdoor living space itself.
