The house is considered as a nano resort in a compact urban setting of a row house. The Glass walls accentuates the pool presence from the lower living level. It act as a trigger to make one indulge into itself.

Pool yard House is located on a busy sector main road in Sec 7 of Panchkula. It is a standard HUDA plot of 500 sq yards having a front of 45’.

As it was a house with users and domestic help. It was created with dedicated House areas and Back of House Areas like in Hospitality properties.

The House was designed to look into . The plan conceived around a pool and a courtyard . Pool as a nucleus at the centre of the house . The house is built around it .

The Pool Glass wall creates an artwork formed by the undulating artwork created by the water in the pool . The pool frames the user as the dynamic artwork making the user itself part of art .

The Word Pool yard was coined by Fusion of a  Pool with the courtyard .  The Pool was deliberately kept small to make a plunge pool and not a lap pool to make it mainly for relaxation.
