Article as it appears in CTC&G July/August 2017: In what is regularly cited as one of the state’s most picturesque sites, overlooking a Connecticut River cove in Lyme, a new 600 square foot pool house by Nautilus Architects melds seamlessly with an infinity-edged pool. The architects erected a terrace plinth to support the structure, as well as a contain the pool and outdoor living space. The pool house functions as both a casual retreat on the property and a self-contained dwelling, complete with a kitchen, built-in-bar-height table for dining, a defined seating area, and a changing shower space. When 25-foot wide pocket doors are slid out of sight on the pool side, the dwelling transforms into an open-air-pavillion.
