Text description provided by the architects. Located on a horse ranch in Sun Valley, Idaho, this simple pool pavilion appears to float in a natural clearing along the Big Wood River. The structure takes advantage of views of the aspen and cottonwood forest, a picturesque nearby horse pasture and the Saddle Mountains in the distance. While designed to function primarily as a pool house, the structure can also function as a guesthouse.

The exposed structure of the pavilion, a modern “pole barn,” captures the simplicity of other utilitarian structures within this agricultural landscape. Floating within the building’s large framework are wood-skinned boxes that conceal a bathroom, shower and storage closet. Enclosing the main living room on two sides are large sliding glass walls that retract to create an open-air shed that anchors the adjoining pool deck. When fully open, the pavilion welcomes cooling breezes with its corrugated steel roof overhang providing shade to the outdoor deck space. In the winter, the pavilion can be enclosed to create an intimate retreat.

A simple palette of materials reflects the rural site and recalls local farm structures. But while the materials may be common, the precision of the detailing creates a much more refined shelter.
