    Palo Alto, California, 2003

    One in a series of projects on a suburban property, the pool house is a transparent structure within a comprehensive reworking of the rear yard. Anchoring a strategy to exploit undiscovered opportunities of the existing landscape, the pool house allows for a progression of increasingly specific and intimate moments. Exterior gathering areas lead to a screened dining porch, glassed-in kitchen, and living area cut into the hillside. A cedar-clad box containing a sauna separates the living area from the outdoor shower and detached bathroom, framing the most private view of the valley beyond.
