The coastal northeast isn’t exactly known for its pool weather, but that doesn’t mean taking a dip year-round has to be out of the question. Turkish company Libart has installed an innovative retractable wall system for a family with an outdoor pool in Brunswick, Maine. The sliding aluminum and glass structure can be extended out over the pool in inclement weather or completely open to enjoy sunny days.
The flexible architectural system lets the owners not only enjoy their large pool and hot tub in cooler weather, but the glass enclosure allows for beautiful views through the trees leading out to Casco Bay. The large glass panels also flood the interior with natural light, making a dip in the covered pool in cold weather all that much sweeter.

The retractable pool enclosure’s black frame gives the structure a clean, minimalist feel that keeps the focus on the stunning natural surroundings. The pool’s Evolution Freestanding system is referred to as “modern architecture in motion” by the company thanks to its dynamic ability to create a multi-functional cover for the homeowners.
