Anti Reality has taking pools to the very next level by designing a home with an amazing pool on the roof. This summer house is set in a rocky seaside area with direct contact with water, with 914-square-foot (85-square-meter), perched on a coastal cliff.
The imagined house is built into a rocky landscape by the ocean, with stairs from the pool on the roof leading directly into the water below, so that you can go from pool to ocean and back as many times as you’d like.
The water level on the roof is controlled through a siphonic drainage system with pipes that snake down the building interior and into an inspection chamber. This way, it’s easy to fill up and empty out.
Aside from the roof/pool, another brilliant element of the house is the interior and the triangle-based layout that opens up panoramically to the landscape, giving you incredible views of the surroundings on all sides through floor-to-ceiling windows.
The Beach house’s interior depends on the configuration of three structural cores that contain a bathroom, a kitchen, and a bedroom. Each core holds a different function, and can be as open or closed as one would like.
This way, Summer House can be as open or closed as the homeowner would like. Alternatively they can opened up entirely to create walls that enclose the interior space completely, creating privacy from the outside world. All of this will be controlled by a mobile panel on the wall.
“One of the key design intents was to create a building that would be completely open to the surroundings, providing the possibility to observe and engage in direct contact with nature,” Anti Reality said. “The Summer House has been designed with seasonal recreation and weekends outside the city in mind.”
