Owners originally wanted to renovate their existing home into a modern retreat to comfortably age in place. Ease of access to the pool and free passage throughout the residence were imperative as retirement and health issues loomed.
Helt Design evaluated the existing home and determined that to renovate the home would not accomplish these goals. The pool was not at the same elevation as finished floor and the home had crawl space and foundational issues that would not justify investing in a large-scale renovation. Helt then commenced schematic design to achieve the project goals while creating a modern retreat for the client. The existing pool was reimagined, and the new home was designed to meld with this outdoor living space. An existing garage was evaluated to be retained as a pool house/guest suite but ultimately it was decided to build it from the ground up.
