The pool house is situated in the garden of an existing house from the 1950’s
with an open view towards the picturesque farmlands behind it. The plot is long and deep, which was the motive to position both pool and pool house in the longitudinal direction. This way the relationship between the house and the scenery is preserved. The view on the landscape could be shared with the pool house, as well as the view on the pool itself. Therefore the pool is given a central place in the garden while the building itself is located towards the east boundary to minimalize shadows and providing a sunny pool and terrace until the evening falls.
Two interacting garden walls form the backbone of the pavilion. A first curved wall functions as a privacy buffer towards the adjacent plot, while a second one defines an additional area with an entrance to the incorporated garden shed and embraces the more private sanitary facilities.
This generates a flow towards the zone at the back of the structure not immediately fully visible when entering the garden, thus creating a more private corner to relax. The roof rests between the two walls and cantilevers towards the south providing shade for the terrace and the interior.
From here you have an unhindered view on the landscape, even when taking a bath.
