ome homeowners have a pool to escape the summer heat. Others have a luxurious waterscape that simultaneously boosts their home’s visual appeal and serves as a nucleus for memorable gatherings. 

For the latter, there’s Steele’s Signature Pools.

A personal resort This stunning waterfront pool features a 52-jet spa, an 8-foot waterfall, and three custom sheet descents. Its design embraces the horizon with a 65-foot negative edge that overlooks the bay. For evening swims, 1,300 fiber optic lights embedded in the pool form a “star field” that makes the design truly stellar. A 25-foot fire feature and custom torches round out the pool’s nighttime appeal.

“A backyard pool is a shared space where people create memories,” says Adam Steele, CBP, Steele’s Signature Pools. And chasing the essence of such gatherings allows his boutique firm to continually innovate swimming pool design. 


He insists that every pool must be uniquely tailored to the homeowner, aligned with specific criteria such as their personal preferences, their home’s landscape, and most importantly, the way they like to entertain. His team of experts ensures that the clients remain the focus of each project from concept to construction.

“At the end of the day, we’re not just designing pools, we’re designing experiences.”

He adds that every pool should highlight the quality and technical expertise of the builder. His bold designs and specialty features require skills that elude the average builder.

“My hallmark is fire,” he says, referring to the custom fire features that he incorporates in his designs. “It adds drama to the design and enhances the overall entertaining experience.”

Steele specializes in residential custom pool design and landscape architecture. His boutique firm has made a big impression on New Jersey’s elite when it comes to lavish swim and spa experiences. His design and build teams approach their work with a mix
of precision, forward thinking, and ambition.

His attention to detail and taste for complexity have made him a leading luxury pool builder in New Jersey. The Northeast Spa and Pool Association (NESPA) has honored Steele’s Signature Pools with multiple awards for Outstanding Achievement and featured them in their quarterly publication,
The Edge. 

“We like to push the boundaries of swimming pool architecture,” says Steele. “Our designs begin in the mind and are finished by hand, but it’s our heart that drives everything we do, 110%.”
