My clients wanted to convert the existing garage wing into living quarters with a library / study, independent guests’ quarters and a den. They also wanted a new garage with solar panels and a pool house. Other areas of the house needed to be remodeled and have new décor.
The property had a front and rear garden with great potential. So, my focus was on opening the home as much as possible to the outdoors.
The new addition, housing the large garage and the pool house, gave the opportunity to frame the rear backyard and the swimming pool between the new buildings and the 2-story expansion to the existing house, giving the effect of an open courtyard.
The pool house, with the option of outdoor and indoor spaces, can be used all year round regardless of weather.
All buildings are embraced by the gardens to the front rear and side yard.
