One of the special design features of this riverfront home is its detached pool house: A 12 x 12-foot glass cube was built as a meditation retreat and is treated to panoramic views of the garden and pool.
This is not your average pool house: The structure includes a meditation area and fire pit. Along the back side is a spa-like glass-tiled shower and changing room as well as an outdoor shower. The building's stone wall doubles as a climbing wall and features a waterfall that empties into the pool.

While the design of this traditional cabana ties into the existing house, certain details lend it a more casual style. Columns that match the home's architecture give structure to the front of the cabana while contributing to its open feel.

To incorporate the modern, industrial design of the space, metal light fixtures were added to maintain the integrity of the design while helping to light the room.
