Gallery featuring images of the Startling Park Street Project by C.O.S. Design, a bold renovation that includes a new pool house and landscape design.
Welcome to our gallery highlighting the riveting Park Street project by C.O.S. Design.
This is a heritage home that was completely revamped to become the open, contemporary creation you see now.
Focusing on the landscape and pool area, the designers have crafted a cohesive new space that feels refreshingly timeless.
The remodeling melds the style of a traditional Victorian heritage home with a newly updated pool and pool house. The holistic approach ties every element into a singularly stylish experience.
The original home was built over 100 years ago, and the designers wanted to preserve its classic lines and textures. Building the new pool house, they aimed to mirror the details of the original structure, ensuring that the two buildings looked of-a-piece.
The pool house was described in their words as “old world, but high tech,” with its stunning modern features and brick facade that matches the original home. It frames one end of the nearly perfectly symmetrical pool and patio.
The pool house boasts a luxurious, comfortable space outfitted with lounge furniture, a television, and marble fireplace. Sheltering this area with a broad roof, it’s a perfect outdoor space to relax in.
The pool itself features a built-in jacuzzi, framed discretely by a blue tile wall within the larger structure. The opposite end of the pool is highlighted by a focal point centering on a large decorative urn beneath a garden arbor.
The broad minimalist hardwood deck protruding over the edge of the pool features a unique hidden feature: lounge chairs built into the surface can be folded up for use, preserving space.
At night, the entire area is lit by a sparkling array of embedded lighting and carefully aimed landscape lanterns. It’s a holistic, welcoming retreat from the outside world.

Viewed from alongside the house itself, we can see the interplay between expanses of concrete tile and rich timber. Strategically placed lighting on the building and surrounding landscape ensures a welcoming glow upon every surface.
Viewed head on, we can appreciate the attention that a sense of symmetry was given when crafting the landscape. The pair of natural wood decks face across the pool, each offering a different form of relaxing space.
The home itself features a large sheltered porch, wrapped in white painted fencing with arches and pillars. The white details are repeated on the pool house, making for a perfectly sympathetic new addition.
The pool house area is flush with comfortable outdoor furniture and wrapped in a broad white countertop. To the right is a small grilling setup with access to the pool house storage.
The large fireplace here is wrapped in marble and flanked by a pair of wood storage voids, with a television mounted behind glass above. This space is designed to be as comfortable as a living room while enjoying the outdoors.
Now we look across the pool and the secondary natural wood deck, which we can see is lined with more subtle lighting. The large urn is surrounded by lush greenery and the dark hued fence is virtually obscured by nature.
Looking back at the house, we can see the delicate interplay between the new landscaping and the original brick building, both meshing into a singular style in this courtyard space. With the built-in lounge chairs raised, we can see how easily the deck transforms into a place of relaxation.
Here’s the view from one deck to another, with the massive rattan sectional standing at center before a beige accent wall. The wall is designed to be eventually covered with fines and greenery, helping with the timeless look of the landscape.
Here’s a last look, a close up view of the flat stones used in the landscaping, contrasting with the lush greenery.
