From the architects that created a house resembling two large ship hulls comes a modern Pool House constructed in the side of a mountain. MacKay-Lyons Sweetapple Architects have built a residence in Quebec along the St. Lawrence River valley, designing an all-weather pad in a rural location.

The minimalist home stands at 2,500 square feet and features a gym, lounge, bathing and changing areas encased in a glass box. Outside, concrete walls surround the signature amenities which include an infinity lap pool, hot tub and fireplace. Meanwhile, the roof extends into a cedar board soffit that covers them all and offers protection against various environmental elements. The glass doors emphasize the building’s all-season layout, as they can be fully opened and allow for natural light to flood into the front of the structure.

MacKay-Lyons Sweetapple Architects created the Pool House for a client and was inspired by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe’s Barcelona Pavilion from 1929.
