This modern pool house in Cheshire plays with light and space to create the illusion that there are no barriers between the indoor and outdoor environments. This highly Miesian design concept sees two full walls of glass combining structural glass walls and slim framed sliding glass doors. The mullions of the sliding glass doors are so beautifully slim that their sightlines match with the slim silicone joints between each glass pane. The minimal sightlines give the skin of the swimming pool room a contemporary aesthetic that compliments the architecture of the existing property.
The pool room in the garden was constructed in a sunken area of the garden which is accessed from a concrete staircase leading from the patio at the rear of the property. The elegant, white patio flows from French patio doors at the back of the home, down the garden stairs and along the sides of the new pool house. The white patio, white render on the house and new outdoor room gives the garden design a modern aesthetic that oozes with sophistication.
The clean, white aesthetic is continued into the interior design of the pool house, the tiled floor, internal pillars, ceiling and walls are all finished in white or pale cream tones. This cleansed colour palette receives the colours of the pool water, luscious green grass and the blue sky so elegantly. This carefully considered architectural design enables the focus to be on the natural environment and the pool water, resulting in a deep connection to nature for the homeowner. This connection is further intensified when the sliding glass doors are opened for a seamless transition between the indoor and outdoor areas.
The top and bottom panes of glass were heated to eliminate any condensation build up on both floors. The IQ Heated Glass system was combined with Minimal Windows to give a wide open feel to this pool space.
