With an existing Grade 2 listed home set within stunning grounds, our client turned to us to construct a contemporary summerhouse and swimming pool that would complement its idyllic surroundings.

The high specification building, with a cantilevered roof and glass wall on one side, has all the hallmarks of modern design. And while it sits close to the traditional rectory, the finished summerhouse manages to achieve a great balance with this building and the grounds as a whole.

We’re really pleased with the result. It is a thoroughly state-of-the-art and stylish take on the traditional poolside outhouse. It’s the kind of space in which you’d want to slide into a lounger on a hot summer’s day, letting the soothing sound of the water feature’s flow of water drift over you.
