Story Pool House | By Lake Flato Architects

The Story Pool House is exactly what its name suggests, a beautiful hang out by the pool. Designed by Lake Flato Architects, the open air pavilion serves as a "sunrise to sunset” living room. Located in sunny Texas, the shelter is made from Texas limestone, steel, and wood, providing a shade from the scorching sun. The hideaway includes a kitchen, dining area, bath, and storage area. Also, a private deck under the vine covered arbor for the trailer and an inviting pool. The beautiful design and flawless execution have awarded this oasis with innumerous architecture awards.
