Stapleton Pool House in Denver, Colorado by Semple Brown Design

April 5th, 2011 by Sumit Singhal

…a Fun place for kids

The visionaries responsible for conceiving these parks realize the importance of community, of successful public space, and of great buildings. These same visionaries believe in allowing the architecture to speak…to say something about place and time.

Interior Elevation View

Commissioned to design multiple buildings (each with identical programs, each with distinct personalities), the second in this series of pool projects was designed for parents with young children and specifically for the children themselves.

North East View

Conceptually, this project was intended to be very playful and loose-natured.  Colorful finishes, materials that exaggerate and express their textures, and a sophisticatedly subtle twist in the architecture are all intentional moves that create an environment geared towards the child.

…with a twist

The diagram for this project became about creating a roof that said a lot without doing a lot – a playful twist in the roof balances 6” above a single beam. The simply crafted move in the structure reveals much about the user, the designer, the place, and the concept.
