The Suffolk Poolhouse designed by David Mikhail Architects was inspired by their client’s vacations to Africa. Their clients wanted a way of ‘living out in the garden’. The white rendered farmhouse has been refurbished and extended with two glazed perpendicular wings – one with an internal swimming pool and the other with living / dining areas and master bedroom suite above. The pool is now the heart of the house. On axis with the entrance and double height, the pool room opens out onto a sheltered courtyard garden with four 5m high, bespoke sliding glass doors. The other new wing looks east over a pond. A sophisticated air handling system ensures that the house is free from high humidity and odors sometimes associated with indoor pools.
