Reed Pool Office & Display Pool
Oakland Park, Florida
The clients owned a swimming pool construction company which operated out of a warehouse. Their business was expanding and they needed additional space for their office and sales, and they owned the adjacent lot.
The project was to design a small organic building, and to include a private pool and terrace, to display their product in a way that would inspire potential customers and sell their company.
It was all enclosed by a stacked concrete block wall which controlled their environment and insulated it from the industrial neighborhood. A wood slat entrance and bridge led to the office and was defined by a wood trellis overhead. The geometry of the pool and the surrounding terrace was based on the equilateral triangle.
The Reed House, built two years later, enlarged upon the same basic idea.
