Indoor Pool

What do you do if it is too cold or rainy to swim in the lake, or in your outdoor pool? You move the party to your indoor pool, of course. The “Carlton Shores” design offers the luxury of a beautiful indoor swimming area, complete with a card table, lounge chairs, hot tub, and a kitchenette.

A thirty-foot vaulted ceiling towers over the rectangular swimming pool. This, combined with windows numbering close to fifty, gives the illusion that this indoor pool is actually outdoors. The floor around the water is spacious, leaving room for large numbers of guests. Multiple sets of French doors give the ability to virtually connect the indoor pool area with the deck outside.

The kitchenette and sitting area provide additional entertainment space, as well as a place to grab refreshments in between laps.

How does anyone clean those windows?

Those do look a bit intimidating to try and clean! There are professionals that specialize in cleaning windows on the interior and exterior in tall spaces such as these to keep them looking pristine.

Dylan Chappell Architects added this to Think Like an Architect: How to Work With a Design Wish List
2. Narrow It DownI’ve found that what works best is when clients let me know what is essential and what would just be nice to include.Remember your reality dish? Budget and space certainly help whittle down that priority list, and absolutely your architect should be part of this process. Let's say your 1,200-square-foot backyard won't accommodate your dream of an Olympic-size swimming pool. If your architect knows that you want an Olympic-size pool because you'd like a couple of 25-meter lanes for your morning lap swim, then perhaps he or she can design an alternative that will allow swimming without an entire Olympic pool. There's no easy way to decide what is a must-have and what isn't. Budget and space considerations will take care of part of this, but plenty of time for introspection and a stab at predicting the future are equally necessary. Only you can decide what's essential for you. Each of us is unique, and our homes reflect that — or should reflect that. A good architect will explain the pros and cons of each item on your wish list to help you make an informed decision. But the decision making is up to you.
