FOREST LAKES POOL HOUSE    BLUE MOUNTIAN BEACH, FLORIDA

This pool house is the central organizing element of a new, traditionally planned, pedestrian oriented neighborhood.  The challenge was meeting the code requirement to fence the pool, and still integrate it with the pedestrian fabric surrounding the sloping site.  This was achieved by digging the bath houses and pool into the site and letting the building become the fence.  Thoughtful siting allows the open air community living room, dining room & kitchen to overlook the pool while maintaining a graceful connection to the sidewalk.
