This ‘Cabin’ in the Hamptons, with it’s distinctly long cantilevers, demanded an equally dramatic long lap pool. Designed by Jasmit Singh Rangr, founder of Rangr Studio, the bold home is distinguished by clean lines integrated into its site without disturbing anything beyond its footprint. The architectural coordination of the watershape’s design is a perfect match with the home.
The vanishing edge pool reaches into the forest the same way the home stretches its cantilevers into the environment. For a better look at the project visit Rangr Studio.
Below the wood deck is a coil of floating slats that roll out to cover the pool and retain heat when the pool is not enjoyed for its beauty or functionality.
The pool is 7′-4″ deep where it meets the neck. It is possible that the body and neck could hinge due to differential soil settlement so extra reinforcing steel was added, reminiscent of the violin strings.
Similarly, the koi pond “bow” crosses the neck with acrylic windows separating fish from lap swimmers. Extra reinforcing was added here too and resembles the horse hair used for real violin bows.
This is the type of special structural engineering that Watershape Consulting is known for – we are creative problem solvers.
