Pool House: 42MM Architecture creates an environment for well-being

The design inspiration of the pool house by 42MM Architecture lies in creating meaningful environments that enhance the feeling of well-being

Pebble in the Grass

The unique and quirky pool house breaks many conventional architectural ideas with a bold design and an unusual execution. Conceived as a standalone structure, it complements the existing house, without replicating it. It accommodates a consolidated entertainment zone with a home theater, lounge, pool, changing room, a gym, and two suites with dressers and toilets.

Its design blends seamlessly with the site it sits on, and sports a refreshing look. The architects have visualized a ‘pebble in the grass’ structure, with the form developed out of a concrete shell, contextually complementing the 20-year-old exposed concrete old house, with its avant-garde design. So here stands a pool house with a bold sculptural identity with a minimalist approach. Asserting its presence with a singular, bold and robust frame, this house sits impressively within its surroundings with softened edges and a slight tilt. The pool house is overlooking the green, it’s perched on, so cantilevering the block was not a challenge. Imagine the unit to be like a sliced section of a pipe, it’s so strong in itself due to pre-stress that, minor stresses and strains are inconsequential.

The design is influenced by a seamless integration of spatial organization with the structure, finishing and lighting. Sustainability plays a major role with passive and active solar design, enabling us to create clean, energy efficient and ‘low burden’ environments.
