pool house

Nestled within the serene confines of nature, the pool house emerges as a modern and design-forward reimagining of the classic pool house. Going beyond the traditional, Wildgrove serves as both a captivating living space by the pool and an immersive experience akin to being in a treehouse.

The defining feature of Wildgrove is its elevation, as it gracefully hovers six feet above the ground, allowing guests to feel as if they are nestled among the bamboo forest canopy. This elevated design was conceived to provide a sense of connection with the natural surroundings, creating a tranquil and almost magical retreat within the trees.

The project's central design challenge lay in marrying functionality with the clean lines and elegance characteristic of the client's mid-century modern home. With careful attention to detail, the result is a structure that seamlessly integrates with the existing architectural aesthetic while adding a touch of contemporary sophistication.

Wildgrove transcends the conventional pool house concept, becoming an architectural wonder that not only elevates the poolside experience but also offers a unique, treehouse-inspired retreat. It's a testament to the harmony that can be achieved when modern design sensibilities meet the beauty of the natural world, resulting in a space that is both functional and enchanting.
