West Enfield Poolhouse

This pool and poolhouse in west Austin came about when an enormous live oak tree split in two in our clients’ backyard. Suddenly they had a huge hole in the ground, and lost all the tree canopy providing shade and privacy from the neighbors. We designed an open gable roof to throw shade on the outdoor living space and enclose a cabana, making the backyard an outdoor room. The asymmetrical peak is on access with views from the main living space in the back.
