This poolhouse for a noted New York Fashion designer recalls the tradition of garden pavilions in the English landscape and miniature temples in the Italian courtyard. The poolhouse sits on a podium of limestone amid a lush lawn, woods, and flowering plants. Broad steps cascade down to the lower lawn and the bay. A classical colonnade of double Tuscan columns supports an entablature of Palladian proportions a more rigorous version of the porch of the main, shingle-style house nearby. Curtains between the columns frame the view and can be closed to create a feeling of intimate domesticity in this grand outdoor setting. A kitchen, laundry area, and towel storage are concealed in the structure.
