Cotswold Manor Pool House
The brief was for the construction of a new pool and pool houses in the gardens of a 17th Century/early 18th Century Cotswold manor house.
The design approach draws on the buildings and materials of the locality. This has generated a building with a relatively simple external form. The introduction of contemporary detailing to the openings and interior creates a play between the natural stone and thatch and crisp lines of glass and steel.
The siting of the new pool house creates a three sided courtyard, orientated to the south which provides privacy. It provides space for a gym changing room, steam room and shower. The pool design is integrated into the overall concept and its link to the gardens has been developed in conjunction with a garden designer.
