New Construction

newtown poolhouse


Ford 3 was approached  to design a standalone garage with a pool house that doubles as a guest house for visiting relatives. The proposed design takes advantage of the sloped site by carving the garage into the earth so it opens at the level of the driveway while the pool house sits on top at the pool level. The vertical circulation is housed in a mass wall that anchors the structure on the site and frames the outdoor living space adjacent to the pool. The interior features an open floor plan with the bathroom and kitchen functions housed in a volume that floats in the space.
