Compound Structure

by Christine Pittel

The size of the property in the rolling countryside outside New York City, as well as the scale and style of the old Colonial house, suggested a straightforward and generous pool supported by "outbuildings". New York architect James Crisp placed a 25-by-55-foot gunnite pool with a bluestone deck about 150 feet away from the main house. Behind it he added two structures: a white clapboard pool house for the homeowner's two sons, complete with soda fountain, and extra long built-in beds and a smaller pitched-roof building to house an in-ground spa. The result is a clean lined recreational compound tailored to the needs of every family member.
