Intertwining Walks 2007 in Water Mill, NY by studio a/b Architects

Saturday, February 25th, 2012

Awarded AIA Peconic Jurors Award for Architecture 2011

A pool house for an existing residence. Wrapped with tall hedges, the site is in a coastal, residential area on eastern Long Island. The main house is a barn-like wooden building, approached from the north, opening only to the east and west yards. The east yard incorporates a Japanese-influenced, stone garden. The west yard is an open lawn surrounded by trees; a large deck attached to the house, and a swimming pool at the southern end of the yard. Having no openings on the south of the house, the south yard was a non-distinctive back yard. The owner wanted the pool house to be located in this yard where it could naturally become a connecting point for the yards. Taking these micro contexts of the site, this project explores a device to generate “outdoor walking connections”.
