The 'Brighton 2' House Features a Sunken Living Room Adjacent to the Pool

Some people love the feeling of the sun on their skin as they lounge in a pool while others want nothing more than to lie on a couch for their leisure time, so the 'Brighton 2' house is hoping to bring those two diverse groups closer together with its unique design. Built by Melbourne-based architecture firm OFTB, Brighton 2 features a sunken living room with glass walls that abuts the pool outside.

The living room and pool actually attach directly through a glass door, meaning that eager swimmers can do a cannonball from inside the den into the water, and tired swimmers can leave the pool and walk straight into the cozy living space. Designed with a modern fireplace, the living room is a great space for warming up after an evening dip.
