Poolhouse

THE POOLHOUSE REFLECTS the refined Georgian Revival of the main house by William Lawrence Bottomley. The poolhouse takes the form of a three bay loggia flanked by pedimented pavilions. It is distinguish by brick corbels, inset stucco panels, rubbed brick arches and a low parapet.

The poolouse design includes rich blue color, timeless brass lighting and hardware, and bluestone flooring that runs out to the pool. The three french doors with arched transoms and matching casement windows on the opposite side emulate a loggia. This space creates a refined upstairs opening out to the pool with a more informal downstairs, perfect for kids. The space boasts a full kitchen with built in table, seating area, bathroom with shower, changing room, and laundry which extends out to a custom mudroom with ample storage that elevates this whole residence.

Kingsmill Residence

Glavé & Holmes was brought on to demolish the owner’s current house and build a new home on the current home site with water views on three sides. Consistent with their goals, the focus of the project was to craft a gracious flow between the primary rooms of the house while maximizing views out to the water. The design centers around an arrival court with the main house centered and anchoring this paved elegant arrival. Wings on each side contain the more private aspects of the house, each of which were designed to embrace and showcase the family’s collection of art and furnishings collected over many years of travel. The rear of the house flows out to covered porches and a large bluestone, elevated patio which engages with the landscape beyond. Throughout the house, on both levels, rooms have windows and balconies to introduce light and take advantage of the site’s unique water views. This project was done in collaboration with Smith McClane Architects.
