The All-Seasons Retreat project featured a light-filled and sustainably responsible pool house meant to provide the tech-savvy family of four with the space to unwind, exercise, and connect with loved ones. For the interior detailing, we balanced the family’s need for highly functional amenities with a calm, spa-like design aesthetic.
Appointed with luxury furnishings, durable materials, pet-friendly textiles, and stunning artwork. Sustainably minded solutions and highly functional amenities were added such as radiant heat floors, high-efficiency geothermal heating and cooling, triple glazed window panes, skylights and fans, LED lighting throughout, ultraviolet lights and an ionizer to keep the pool water clean, and a water fountain bubbler for the kids to reduce plastic bottle usage. The automated LED lighting control system for the structure and pool systems includes full automation of the ventilation and humidity controls as well.
Complete home automation offers plenty of opportunities for this family to customize the functions, the environment, and adjust their desired mood. To help enhance the desired spa-like environment, the team added sound-insulating architectural acoustic plaster to dampen the noise factors inherent in a pool house. We also incorporated a quiet, efficient pool system and added grow lights and a drip system for the tropical plants.
