This pool house in Rye takes full advantage of the waterfront setting and brings the outside in. Walls facing the ocean and pool disappear with the integration of Kolbe lift-and-slide doors. A low-profile sill blurs the line between the interior polished concrete floor and the poolside patio outdoors. Pocket doors disappear behind the fireplace to allow this central feature to become freestanding. Concealed overhead roll screens descend at the push of a button from the bold walnut banding that encircles the vaulted ceiling.

Judges said: This room opens completely to the pool patio while also functioning well as an enclosed space. Regardless of the weather or season, this room inspires gatherings.
