West County Orchard Pavilion

A modern house in a working apple orchard had little connection to its site and context.  merge studio developed a pool and terrace aligned with the orchard rows, so that taking a swim puts you on level with the fruit tree canopy.  A generous modern pool cabana provides outdoor kitchen space, a shower and bath, and a custom fire lounge for entertaining.  Railing and step details highlight the existing architecture.
