Project Description

CAMPFIRE POOL

CHAPPAQUA, NEW YORK
2015

The house and site for this pool project was a Tudor house from the 1930’s.  Expanded and modernized extensively by the Homeowners before they moved in in 2007, the house sits on a private, gently-sloping 2 acre lot in Westchester County, New York.  We approached the project in 2014 with the concept of creating a separate “weekend getaway” on the existing lot, and we sited the new pool, an in-ground hot tub, and a modest changing room on the far end of the house away from the main living spaces of the house – the great room, kitchen, and breakfast area. We took advantage of an existing sunroom and trellised outdoor area that was rarely used, and we were able to ground this new escape away from the everyday living spaces.
