Originally designed as a pool house and art studio by mid-century modern architects Nathaniel Saltonstall and Oliver Morton, the space has recently been renovated to become a two-bedroom home, designed by Hammer Architects.

The home was originally built using a simple post and steal beam frame.

A recent division of the property allowed the current owners to purchase the building with the intent of turning it into a two-bedroom home.

Hammer Architects designed a new living room, dining room, kitchen, two bedrooms, and bathrooms inside the existing shell, as well as redesign of the pool area.
