Pool House by Hariri & Hariri

In the suburbs of Connecticut, there is a tiny architectural jewel created by Hariri & Hariri Architecture. It’s in fact a swimming pool house, but with its 365sq.m area it might as well be the main house. Built of natural stone and Ipe wood, the pool house is eye-candy with its blend of minimalist elegance and modernistic sophistication. The building’s distinctive feature is an angular archway that parallels the pool and gives great protection against sun and bad weather if the owners decide to dine outside. On the inside there are the usual premises – bar, kitchen and bathroom
