This modern Pool house design was built by Artillery for a customer in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia. It takes advantage of the natural shade from a nearby elm tree, as well as climbing plants and shrubs that surround the pool house.
Pool house design by Artillery architectural firm
The architecture of the pool house has been carefully adapted to the surroundings. The structure was built of steel, with steel framed doors. Zinc cladding covers the outside by making it look like a fitting extension of the main house.

The doors open fully so that they serve for easy transition between the indoor and outdoor areas.
Interior design of the pool house
The private pool house design lies under an existing elm tree, which it uses as natural shade. In addition, the skeleton of the pergola is slowly enveloped by a creeper, which will fill the cavities with greenery to create more natural shade.
Steel construction and glass folding doors
Artillery architects were also commissioned to design the interior of the main house (including the original house and a new addition by Jackson Clements Burrows). The owners ‘and designers’ love for wood is expressed here.
Wooden deck and seat cushions
The nicest part of the design process was working with the owners who combined design, passion and knowledge. Her collection of extraordinary furniture and art pieces, collected during her travels abroad, fill the rooms within the houses. These pieces make the room lively and full of love.
