Australia has a wonderful weather perfect for lounging by the pool. And when a luxurious home has a pool, it could very well have a pool house to go with it. When the owner of a South Yarra property approached the creative offices of Artillery with the request for a new pool house, they teamed up with Paul Bangay for landscaping to create a comfortable and inviting pool house that replaces a former stable and connects to the main house.
Shaded by the large Elm tree under which it was positioned, the pool house also features a skeletal pergola that will be soon covered with climbing greenery acting as a more powerful shading system. Creative minds have transformed the South Yarra Pool House in Victoria, Australia, into an open, modern space that generates a sense of resort-style living.
“The shape of the Pool House stems from historic beginnings whilst being carefully adapted with discrete folds creating subtle shadows. The structure was constructed from steel, with steel framed doors. Zinc cladding covers the exterior whilst matching the extension of the main house. Doors were designed to fully open, allowing for an easy transition between the interior and exterior.”
