Pool House Le, 1180 Vienna     

This property, on the edge of the ‘Wiener Wald’, had two areas that needed connecting: the enchanted edge of the forest and the modern pool house.
The basic framework for the spatial concept was laid with luxurious planting which accentuated the different areas. The theme of water repeats throughout the entire garden, in the form of concrete fountains, metal water basins as well as a pool.
In order for the edge of the forest to correspond to the pool house, a characterful pavilion construction with a lounge area was chosen, as it sets itself apart from the edge of the forest in an exotic way without appearing bizarre. Different spaces were also created, such as a children’s playground with a sandy beach, shaded and sundrenched areas. Technical refinements, such as a hidden sliding cover for the pool, have been incorporated without affecting the design.
