Backyard Retreat

Our clients were looking for an exciting new way to entertain friends and family throughout the year and create a better year-round outdoor experience and connection to their pool.  The solution was a luxury custom pool house addition. Looking to expand upon the rustic modern look and feel of their home, we designed the pool house with modern selections, ranging from stone to pastel brick and slate roof.

The interior of the pool house contains slip-resistant porcelain tile that is indistinguishable from natural wood. The fireplace and backsplash are covered with a metallic tile that gives it a rustic, yet beautiful, look that compliments the white interior. 

The pool house is an adaptive structure that uses multi-panel folding glass doors. They appear large, though the lightness of the doors helps transform the enclosed, conditioned space into a permeable semi-open space. A single bathroom sits parallel to the wet bar, which comes complete with beautiful custom appliances and quartz countertops to accentuate the dining and lounging experience.

The space remains covered by an intricate cedar trellis and shaded retractable canopy, all while leading to the dining space and outdoor area for grilling and socializing.
