Hotel Pool Timber Frame Enclosures

Harmony Timberworks as Builder

The elements of wood and water combine to give a natural authenticity to a swimming experience, making it feel like you're taking a dip in a river in a forest. Harmony timber framed enclosures for a pool make the perfect combination of structural integrity and style.


An Elegant and simple truss design was employed at a Ritz-Carlton Hotel to evoke a tropical theme against the backdrop of a safari white wall (pictured on the far left, above). White stained wood works well here. The hotel pool at this Ritz-Carlton was transformed into a tropical sanctuary by timber framing. A natural setting is created by the interplay of two different timber species, that of the mahogany colored trimming along the columns and the wall and that of the white timber trusses spanning the ceiling. A pool like this one would certainly be the highlight of any visitor’s stay at the hotel, where interior design elements and traditional timber frame construction combine to create an authentic luxury experience.


Enhance your nautical experience with a traditional timber frame pool enclosure for your hotel, community development, school, or private home!
