Located on a flat, irregularly-shaped lot at the end of a cul-de-sac, the neighbourhood contains a variety of styles and references to the preferred typical suburban desert subdivision.The house is designed for a retired couple with the need for guest bedroom suites and a large communal space providing living, dining and kitchen.To achieve a feeling of clean simplicity within conventional means, it was decided that planning and construction must be straight forward. The character of the house reflects a strategy of enclosure vs. and openness focused towards the main outdoor space. Two simple volumes are connected together to define a corner with one wing containing the guest bedrooms, and the other containing the master suite. The two wings are connected at the main public space: living dining and kitchen.Hallways are located along the East and South sides of the two wings and help to define the laterally spaced rooms which can be closed off from the circulation zone with large sliding walls. The rooms all access the outdoor pool/courtyard space from large sliding glass walls.

Kit Pollard added this to Jump In: Great Pools
While I love curve/angle contrasts, sometimes all angles is nice, too. This works because the house wraps around the pool, giving it a courtyard feel that's cozy enough to counteract all the hard angles.

3. Separate zones. Creating a separate zone or two for visiting friends and relatives makes a lot of sense. These zones should be self-contained so they don't need to be heated or cooled when not in use.

looks like our LHP house space in the patio. The rectangular pool design with the added in-ground spa reflects my idea of how I would like to remodel the pool, and adding an infinity edge to the east side..
