A MID-CENTURY
HOUSE
BY +TONGTONG

This freestanding, 1000-square-foot pool house had lost its middle-century charm after several renovations. +tongtong company transformed this relic into a multi-purpose minimalist space that can be a work studio, guest house, pool house, entertainment area or event space.

The house has an oval pool beside. The original house was covered by heavy stone and now the most part of the exterior is covered by cedar slats.

+tongtong designed a huge coffee table that is made of exotic wood from the Panama Canal. The table has easily rotated legs that bring the table up to counter height.

The toilet and shower areas on the private side are enclosed in a bright blue glass that adds colorful element to the space. Designers thought about privacy and made an electronic blind for the toilet.

The designers managed to keep the house’s middle-century aesthetic but do it modern. They kept its flat roof and brought it forward, adding a brow.
