Murray Legge Architecture designed this pool house located in Westlake Hills, Texas. It includes a swimming pool, spa, and terraced landscape. It is nice that the green roof also has some flowers it which adds more beauty to the structure. It is also a nice compliment to the landscape of the pool house.
Seen here is the infinity edge swimming pool which is surrounded by a deck with plenty of space for entertaining and relaxing in the sun. The pool has blue floor tiles which adds appeal to the area. As seen in the first image of this feature, the pool has a beautiful design with creative steps that allows users to get in and out of the pool.
According to the designers, “impervious cover and storm water run-off regulations within the city are very restrictive.” Hence, in order to work within the guidelines of the city, a green roof was installed on the pool house.
The pool house has an indoor-outdoor dining area which also comes with a high-end residential kitchen. Some portion of the pool house has large glass windows on it which makes it a little transparent just like the area near the kitchen. It would be nice to get a glimpse of the pool while preparing some snacks in here.
The curve of the green roof is also reflected in the interior of the pool house. A wood boat-like vaulted ceiling echoes the surrounding canyon hills. This also makes the ceiling higher which adds to the brightness of the pool house.
