The Need

  • Security – the pool house need to be secured from all sides to prevent break-ins, and maximize the overhead space.
  • Weather protection – protection from different weather elements such as snow, rain, sun.
  • Bugs protection –  the idea is to create a lounge in the pool house where you can sit and enjoy a beverage without interruption of annoying bugs or nosy neighbours.
  • Air circulation – The space must be sealed but at the same time transparent enough to sit inside and watch the kids swimming in the pool, and breathing fresh air.
  • Shaded out door dinning space.
