Description of Works: This is in total contrast to the fine Georgian interiors in the main house which is a grade 2* listed building. A contemporary pool house for the new swimming pool with natural Yorkshire stone hard landscaping around. This small building is design with a “false façade” the stone-fronted façade is separated from the rear wall by glazed vertical slots. The external stone slabs are fixed to a masonry backing by stainless steel bolts and this treatment is carried around the pool as facings to the retaining walls. The entrance doors are electrically operated frameless glass doors, which are recessed into pockets in their open position giving clear passage in and out of the building. Internally the rear wall is clad in the same stone as the front wall and its curved form gives a simple unity to the small divisions within the building. A copper clad ceiling gives a dramatic contrast to the beautiful, but low key natural surfaces on the walls and floor. A shower and toilet are provided behind a frameless glass partition wall, which is opaque to eye level with the upper area clear to allow the ceiling to float over the whole space.
