Another Gorgeous Roof Pool to Cool a House

There is something very inspiring about super-minimal coastal houses in hot climates with swimming pools on top to cool them. Like the intriguing “knowledge device” from artist Gabriel Orozco, this example from Lucio Rosato has an almost metaphysical beauty.

In these pools you can bask at a height above a vast ocean as if you are an angel floating in the sky above it.

The only escape from the sun up here is the simple structure at the end of the deck. It is set on the Mediterranean, like another rooftop pool in Turkey.

Beneath part of the pool is a giant breeze-way into the simple house set underneath.

Part of the pool cools the ceiling of the house. Not this room under the pool deck’s shading device, but further back into the house.

Like the simple horizon it oversees, the bare bones shade structure is pared away to just its most minimal elements. Green and gorgeous.

Mmmmmm…  Perfect peace.
