SARATOGA HOUSE SWIMMING POOL
Saratoga, California, 2005
See also Saratoga House

To "complete" the north end of the ridge-top property we designed a vanishing-edge pool that dramatizes the plinth-like ridge with a gesture to the San Francisco Bay to the north. Subtle topographic manipulation and leveling afforded by the spoils from pool excavation help mitigate the inaccessible nature of the site while still offering the inhabitants a direct experience of the drama of the site. In keeping with the dictates of the house, we incorporated the required features of wheelchair-accessibility without allowing these to be seen as compromises.
