Indian pool house by 42mm Architecture has a concrete frame

  • A thick loop of concrete forms the walls, flooring and roof of this pool house, completed by Indian firm 42mm Architecture in the garden of a New Delhi residence (+ slideshow).
  • The pre-stressed concrete structure made it possible to slightly cantilever the structure over the edge of its sloping site.
  • Other recently completed pool houses include a bulky concrete structure in Madrid and a building with a folded wooden ceiling in Melbourne.

  • “This combination of wood and concrete renders an expression which welcomes its guests while dazzling them,” added 42mm Architecture.
  • “Asserting its presence with a singular, bold and robust frame, this house sits impressively within its surroundings,” it added.
