A Pool Pavilion

Newick Architects as Architects

The site for this project is an existing 1960’s modern house with a 1980’s complementary addition. The Pool existed at the outset as well.


We were asked to design a new pool enclosure fence and Car Port that would be more consistent with the architecture of the house than the English trellis and dovecotes that existed when we began. All of this pre-dated the current owner.


As the design developed, we introduced a fourteen foot wide glass and aluminum rolling door facing the pool so that the car port could be used as a pavilion for parties. The rear portion of the pavilion houses the pool equipment.


The materials are a precise array of painted steel, stainless steel woven fabric, aluminum, low iron clear and etched glass and stucco. The garden was repaired and enhanced at the base of the woven stainless fence. This stainless material is an intricate material detailed here as if it was a solid infill panel in its painted steel frame. It reads as if opaque or translucent or transparent depending on how the light is hitting it.


The construction of the pavilion was unforgiving. Every piece shows and the precision of the materials made the installation and alignment of the various parts a difficult task. The cement stucco is quite rough and was finished to match the roughness of the stucco of the main house.


The project was developed and detailed using AutoCad.
