Scottsdale Living Magazine features our luxury glass tile swimming pool

"Tiling Your Way to Backyard Artistry with Alpentile"

by Kimberly Gunning


"Luke and Amy Denny of Alpentile lay each glass tile by hand and take great pride in their work. They love working with glass tile, especially in pools and spas. In aquatic environments, iridescence equals show-stopping eye candy. Successfully installing these luxurious materials in Arizona’s harsh climate is Luke’s specialty, demanding his technical expertise, his passion for perfecting aesthetics – oh yes, and a good dose of patience.
Inspired by soaking tubs of Morocco, this all-glass tile spa is a sparkling gem. One of Alpentile’s signature details is the handmade mosaic murals Amy Denny creates for areas like this spa floor. She says, “We think about how our tile layout can add to the design. For example, if the spa is round, we will make sure our mosaics accentuate that feature by including a radial medallion.”
Customized templates are fabricated for each project in order to achieve full-tile layout. Specialized mosaic trim pieces wrap corners for a safe edge profile. Another signature detail in the spa is the seat back – a single row of tile at a 45-degree angle to catch reflective sunlight. “We continuously experiment with our installation details so our clients can experience the full artistic potential of these luxury products,” Luke Denny "explains.
