Aros Architects designed this stunning pool house in Beckley which was constructed with slim framed sliding doors to maximise the light from outside and vision into the garden whilst the homeowners were swimming in the pool.
This contemporary glass pool house in Beckley explores the relationship between natural light and space to result in a seamless transition between the indoor and outdoor spaces. The design possesses a minimal aesthetic with two walls of floor to ceiling glazing, comprising slim framed sliding doors, meet to create an impressive glass façade. The glass pool house achieves a strong connection to the surrounding garden because the sightlines of the sliding doors are so slim.
The glass pool house was designed to be completely separate from the main house so that the homeowners can enjoy a sense of escapism from their daily lives. The pool house is situated on a large wooden decking that extends several metres from the edge of the walls of glass. At night the decking and the pool house are illuminated by white LED lights installed to the roof at a slight angle.
The contemporary aesthetic continues from the exterior of the pool house through to the interior where elegant grey tiles fill the floor and a division wall that runs along one length of the swimming pool. Behind this divisional wall is a private sauna, steam room and changing room. This offers an additional touch of decadence to the space and creates more facilities where the homeowners can relax.
The roof of the pool house is gently arched which creates a welcoming atmosphere internally. The arched ceiling completed with light-toned wooden beams softens the otherwise rectilinear structure. Painted white, the ceiling beautifully juxtaposes the grey tiling and black sightlines of the sliding doors.
