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.
This sleek vanishing edge pool is a work of art strategically aligned through a forest of protected oak trees in Northern California – preserving the environment in many ways.
The environmental protection plan continued with water and energy conservation at the depths of this beautiful design – literally. At the deepest part of this pool is a vault that conceals a 1/2″ thick floating-slat cover that, when deployed, stops evaporation and retains heat at night.
During the day the cover heats the pool like a giant blanket, increasing the water temperature without the use of fossil fuels – preserving the environment at a distance.
The Aquamatic HydraLux cover requires no tracks at the waterline, no track at the vanishing edge, and no hard-to-hide lead-bar typical of vinyl safety covers. As the HydraLux name implies, these covers are a premium luxurious addition to a pool and/or spa but the long-term water and energy savings will pay for it in time.
Another benefit of a floating slat-cover is the ability to cover shapes other than rectangles which is a primary limitation of typical vinyl automatic safety covers.
