The Whitefish Poolhouse is perched on a steep slope high above Whitefish Lake. Through the process of design, CTA's client chose a more contemporary feel, with the focus being on the 75-ft. single-lane lap pool, a Japanese soaking tub, a changing/shower area, an exercise room and a fine art gallery. The structure appears as a small collection of buildings situated along the hillside and nesting themselves into the contours where appropriate, but boldly contrasting the grades by extending portions of the building out over the steep slope.

You and your architect:
Getting Started

ask yourself these questions:
  • How will your project be used — do you have specific ideas on how to translate these activities into spaces and square footage?
  • Do you have a site or will this also be a subject of discussion with your architect?
  • Have you decided upon a schedule or budget?
  • What are your overall aesthetic and emotional, as well as practical, aspirations for the project?
