Palo Alto, California, 1998-2003

One in a series of projects on a suburban property, the pool house is a transparent structure within a comprehensive reworking of the rear yard. Anchoring a strategy to exploit undiscovered opportunities of the existing landscape, the pool house allows for a progression of increasingly specific and intimate moments. Exterior gathering areas lead to a screened dining porch, glassed-in kitchen, and living area cut into the hillside. A cedar-clad box containing a sauna separates the living area from the outdoor shower and detached bathroom, framing the most private view of the valley beyond.

They are jacaranda trees, in the spring they have purple blossoms and are quite lovely.
