Winter, spring, summer, and fall: nature is a four-season phenomenon, so it’s only natural that the conservatory, the place best suited to celebrate its daily bounty, also be a year round structure.
Custom Pool House Conservatory
This custom pool house conservatory is a freestanding building with a built-in spa inside. The two-tone color scheme was coordinated with the red brick and mortar of the main house.
Ochre woodwork matches the cast stone urns, the capitals on the brick piers and the trim on the house itself. The heavily-tinted roof glass, which from the outside seems almost opaque, echoes the dark shingles on the main house and blocks most of the sun’s heat. From the inside, the tint is barely apparent but substantial enough so that no air conditioning is required – even in the summer. One of the challenges of the design was to incorporate changing rooms, bathroom facilities and a small kitchenette within this custom conservatory structure.
The cleverly designed solution calls for a “separate” but attached brick extension to the back of this custom pool house conservatory.
On center with the adjacent swimming pool, it provides a visual “anchor”, and it divides the yard into “Pool” space and separates it from a groomed putting green on the other side.
