Pool Pavilion --- AIA Silver Medal Award Winner
The owners acquired an adjacent property and called on our firm and a team of consultants to join the properties into one seamless private park like setting complete with a Pool Pavilion and Pool. Cedar shingles on the exterior, a nod to the main house, recede into the landscape while the soaring glass windows and doors flood the space with light and views back into the landscape.
A study of light and space, The Pavilion offers different experiences at different times of the day. The optimum display of light and transparency occurs at dusk. At that hour, one can catch the reflections in the pool and the glowing of this small jewel within in the landscape.
Amenities include an air conditioned lounging area with TV and kitchen/bar, a laundry and changing room, a private bathroom with shower, an additional outdoor shower and a full basement for storage of pool toys and equipment.
The contemporary approach combines rich woods, stainless steel, and concrete with marble, glass tile and natural stones. The building also features a bead board ceiling and exposed structure. This blend of materials yields a sophisticated modern design that is calm and cheerful while providing conditioned entertaining space for the Owner’s family and friends.
The client gushes “I feel like I am transported — on vacation — every time I open the doors and enter the space.”
