San Marino Pool House

This project converts compact poolside utility and sleeping quarters into a guest suite with a boutique hotel feel.

The poolside entry room provides a comfortable place to enjoy a cold drink or snack, with custom cabinetry concealing the laundry facilities for the main house, a compact refrigerator/freezer and a microwave oven.

The cabinetry also provides ample storage for towels, sunscreen, after-sun moisturizers and the occasionally required aloe gels and solarcaine.

An open-plan bedroom, bathroom and dressing area serve as the quarters for South Beach guests.  A transparent glass shower, with a recessed illuminated showerhead, faces onto the bedroom.  It’s not always sunny at the beach, after all.
