A pool and guest house in Brentwood (Los Angeles) designed by Tim Barber Ltd. Architecture.

Guest & Pool house

Brentwood, Los Angeles, California

This petite guest house tucked beyond the pool of a Brentwood home is only 12 feet deep.  Judicious design of this new construction allows for a vaulted sitting room, a fireplace surrounded by bookcases, a guest bedroom and a full bath.  The sitting area is flooded with light from a wall of tri-fold French doors, fully retractable for parties and poolside socializing.  

The modern plan brims with traditional details like tall transoms, bookshelves with movable cleats, and cupboard-style closets.  The use of authentic materials such as painted lap siding and a grout-less brick floor make the pool house feel as if it has been there for decades.
