Pool & Pool House

Pool & Pool House
Stowe, Vermont

This mountain top residential site offers spectacular 180 degree views towards adjacent hillsides. The client desired to replace an existing pond with a pool and pool house to be used for both entertaining and family use. The open site is adjacent to the driveway to the north but offered spectacular mountain views to the south. The challenge was to provide privacy at the pool without obstructing the beautiful vista from the entry drive. Working closely with the architect we designed the pool and pool house as one modern element closely linked by proximity, detailing & geometry. In so doing, we used precise placement, careful choice of building & site materials, and minimalist planting. Existing trees were edited to open up selected views to the south. Rows of ornamental grasses provide architectural delineation of outdoor space. Understated stone steps in the lawn loosely connect the pool to the main house.

Architect: Michael Minadeo + Partners

You will need to contact architect Michael Minadeo to see if he would be willing to sell the plans.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Eric Reinholdt, Architect added this to Design Workshop: 9 Ways to Open a House to the Outdoors
This outdoor room is another example of how a simple transition space can support multiple functions. The linear structure serves as a guesthouse, an outdoor dining area and a screen between the driveway and pool. The solidity of the copper-clad enclosed space dissolves into its component architectural parts — columns, walls and rafters — to define the poolside outdoor dining area. The large opening in the screening-wall element visually connects the approach to the property via the driveway to the view while maintaining privacy for the dining and pool space.The trellis overhead defines a place for gathering without the correlating weight of a solid roof.
