The homeowners desired a freestanding pool house that would be designed to complement the pool and the home. They had a limited amount of space, but still wanted to include a bathroom, kitchen and living area complete with a fireplace. The age of the home made it difficult to match the existing brick, so a smooth stucco finish was chosen to complement the home.
The stucco finish allowed for a modern look while keeping in line with other homes in the neighborhood. Many of the other homes have also gone with stucco finishes. The stucco, along with the travertine tile kept the project simple and clean. Curtains were installed to allow for some privacy or to block late afternoon sun.
The tiled wall in the kitchen area adds a subdued pop of color.
The cast stone fireplace surround blends well with the stucco walls.
Details inside the pool house include a vaulted wood ceiling to keep it feeling natural and spacious. The homeowners wanted to make sure they could use their pool house year round, so heaters were installed to take the chill off on those nights when the temperature dropped.
Ryan, our project manager, was both attentive and patient with every request, question, and concern that we raised at any point throughout the duration of the project. He was always a phone call or text away, responding every time in an impressively timely manner. He listened to and accommodated our requests, but he also offered suggestions to broaden our imaginations as to what we could create with simple adjustments to our design.
