Rooms With a View: Pool Side

An architect accentuates water vistas beside the pool

While designing the Morgan Point residence, a classic wood-framed house on the Tred Avon River in Oxford, architect Lauren Dianich of Atelier 11 created an open-air pavilion at the southern end of a long lap pool. This structure provides welcome shade while beautifully framing the expansive water view. The goal “was maximum exposure to lovely waterfront views for the owner, who is a devoted lap swimmer,” explains Dianich. “Each lap ends with a view of the Tred Avon River.”
