This project involved the design of a new open-air Pool House on grounds of a 1905 carriage house estate. The main house and guesthouse on this property were also extensively renovated as part of the project.
The concept for the new Pool House was to incorporate the vocabulary of these existing structures into the form while creating a protected, yet open space with a bright and fresh interior. The Pool house is sited on axis to a new fifty-foot pool and the existing Breakfast Room terrace with views back to the house and the adjacent pastoral fields.
The exterior of the pool house is shingled, with bracketed rakes, exposed rafter tails and a cupola. Wood louvered shutters and a custom made removable fabric cover protect the structure during the off season.
The interior of the Pool House includes a vaulted sitting area with wide beadboard on the walls and ceiling, shingled half walls and a soapstone wet bar. The bluestone flooring flows in from the pool terrace, blurring the boundaries of interior and exterior space. The bath and changing area have a built in stained bench and a vanity with an integral soapstone sink. An exterior shower enclosure is linked to the form by the bracketed extension of the main roof.

This beautiful kidney-shaped spa, with natural flagstone coping and bluestone tiling, gets a special touch from a gorgeous waterfall that cascades all the way down the slope behind the whirlpool. Matching natural stone pavers and retaining wall make it all look like a natural part of the rustic landscape.

This custom raised hot tub is the perfect antidote to the winter blues! Measuring 8'0" in diameter, it is raised 18" to provide easy ingress and egress for the whole family. Capped with Indiana Limesone coping, and clad with an irregular oakfield flagstone fascia, the spa emanates subdued elegance. Surrounded by ample Yorkstone manufactured paver decking, and collared by a Yorkstone paver block seating wall, this space provides the perfect safe haven for rest and relaxation. outvision photography
