Poolhouse in Wesley Heights
The program includes the design of a two-story pool house pavilion complete with a bathroom, changing room and storage room for an existing pool; the pavilion preserves the openness and views of the property. The design solution is a scheme of two pavilions (one a changing room, the other a bathroom) joined by a central pergola. The storage room is on the ground level, while the pool house complex is on the pool/upper level.
The storage room was constructed of poured-in-place concrete walls with pre-cast concrete planks spanning the short distance and supporting the pavilions above. The planks are covered with a sheet membrane waterproofing with a bluestone terrace set in a bordered diagonal pattern to match the paving around the existing pool. The south wall of this area was designed with a steel beam spanning between the two door openings so that the combined opening could be converted to a garage door at a later date.
Custom-designed wrought-iron railings lead from the ground level to the pool level, while a basket weave fence and railing wraps around the perimeter of the pool house pavilion and pool.
