Site Size: 29,900 square feet

Project Size: 650 square feet (first phase of a larger compound)

Program: Completed in November 2009, the pool house is the first phase of a larger single-family residential building project on a large flag-shaped lot in South Pasadena, just northeast of Los Angeles. While it was originally built to allow a family of four to live on site during construction, it is currently used as a guest house.

Solution: The 650-square-foot space contains a double height lounge and bedroom, which is divided by a bathroom and kitchen core. The mezzanine above the core provides additional sleeping space. The wood-framed house is constructed with simple materials: metal siding, concrete floors, drywall, and triple-wall polycarbonate, and the bathroom and kitchen are lined with oriented strand board with a blackboard wainscot. To help cool off the building during Southern California’s hot, dry summers, the architects installed fan-assisted earth cooling tubes.
