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.

For more modern architecture, check out the Hooded Cabin in Norway which combines functionality with an artistic and geometric aesthetic.
