Created by Robert Young Architects this small and efficient pool house in New York is one such structure that maximizes space while adhering to local pool house building codes.
Locally sourced hardwood is used throughout the house and this not only made the project a lot more sustainable but also cut down dramatically on the building time and costs. The interior is simple and elegant with distractions if modern life being kept away.
Exquisite use of gray stone in the bathroom along with ample natural light and a white and wood color scheme in kitchen and dining put the final touches of sophistication on this fabulous transformation. Cheerful and inviting this once aging structure is again a delightful family residence!
