La Grange Pavilion Navigates Gnarled Trees

La Grange Pavilion, a pool house in East Texas, incorporates the natural landscape in an interesting way. The site of the pool house is densely populated by gnarled, fully grown oak trees, so rather than clearing out these historic living monuments, La Grange Pavilion is built around them. One of the oak trees grows up through the center of the pavilion, appearing to rise out of the concrete flooring and poke through hole in the roof.

The pool itself is built up to the edge of a hilly precipice. It's an infinity pool with a hidden barrier facing out over the oaken valley — a tranquil respite in the Texas woods. The pavilion above it features several areas for lounging and dining.
