Jones Pierce was called upon to continue the design work which started several years before. The owners desire to install a pool and give the house the garage space it was lacking led to a combination garage/poolhouse/guest quarters. Taking the form of a classical garden folly, the structure addresses pool and spa pavilion while hiding the garage on the rear elevation. A generous guest suite upstairs has an enviable view of Midtown from a private deck. The landscape is embellished with garden rooms, a rockery fountain and places for sculpture, forming a tapestry of outdoor activity. This time, Paul Gouin of Wisdom Properties maintained the high standard of construction at the site and shared the architect’s appreciation of well-weathering, local materials while adopting the latest sustainable products for a maintenance-conscious building.
