Guest house or pool house? Why not both!
The attention to detail in this pool house design is the focus of any garden party.

Therefore, it is important to equip it with the essentials: a fully equipped kitchen, an upstairs bedroom, a bathroom and a living room with a TV. We definitely wouldn’t mind staying here for a few days this summer!

indoor waterfall anyone? This impressive indoor pool area offers the perfect place to relax all year round, even in the middle of a snowy winter. A weather-controlled, single-track sliding glass wall protects the interior from harsh temperatures without compromising views of the changing landscape or ease of use. Better yet, individual panels can be placed in a variety of configurations, moved around corners and slid into distant piles that are not flush with the opening. How do you customize yours?
