Known for sleek, modern prefabricated, modular homes that they say can be built in twelve weeks, Australian company Modscape has done it again, this time with a gorgeous low-lying pool house hidden behind a wall painted to look like cinderblocks. Though the lowly cinderblock gets a bad rep in the world of capital-A architecture, the idea was to provide privacy and security for residents by creating an imposing face for the structure. Clocking in at about 5,000 square feet (465 square meters, to be precise), the interiors of the two-bedroom pavilion couldn't be more different from that stalwart facade. Airy, open-plan spaces, comprised of 11 modules fixed together, look out at a pool, and a mix of timber flooring and beams, zinc accents, and broad windows lend the entire space a brightness that's rather dreamy. Take a look.
