This site is at the foot of Fragrant Hill. It is a swimming pool annex next to the main housing area.  The L-shaped form divides the outdoor space into two parts as a front and back courtyard.  It also shields the courtyard from neighboring homes and the street.  The exterior wall is cladded in stone from a local quarry.  The skylights and windows of various sizes let in sunlight and reflect the passing of time during the course of a day and seasons of the year.  Through these openings one can look upon the summer trees’ lush foliage and winter snows, further enriching one’s swimming experience.
