Poolhaus by Baumhauer
Photographer Julien Lanoo has sent us his photos of this transparent pool house in Munich, Germany by Berlin studio Baumhauer.
Poolhaus is a glass and steel construction, with white screed floors, and a polished stainless steel island containing a sink.
The pool house contains a toilet, pool filter system, lawnmower garage, and shower and changing room
Rather than being hidden, everything contained in the pool house can be seen from outside through glazing and translucent curtains.
All photographs are by Julien Lanoo.
Here's some more from the architects.
The pavillion combines on 25 m² the pool filter system, shower, changing room, toilet and a lawnmower garage conventionally, spaces of this purpose supposedly require covering and hiding surfaces
The facilities are intentionally placed in a vitrine.
Their outlines are both fracrured and distorted by the mirrored vegetation on the glass façade.
Toilet, shower, changing room: The level of intimacy can individually be adjusted by curtains.
