Covered Shade Structure Reading Nook Architecture

Although it is situated roughly 60 miles west, this custom pool cabana in Brookville, NY pays homage to the homes of the Hamptons by incorporating the iconic slopes of a gambrel roof. The shade structure is situated on a beautiful Long Island property and designed to address the seasonal sun exposure. It serves as a multi-functional quiet, covered retreat for reading in nature, a pool house for changing rooms and storage, and an outdoor bar and seating area for entertaining the family and their guests.

The material palette includes natural cedar and bluestone which serve as functional indoor/outdoor choices while playing off color palette of the lush landscape surrounding it.
