Schnabel House( Nick Springett )
The master bedroom and wading pool at night.
When Platt executed any changes to the original design, he called upon the same vocabulary, whether that meant matching outdoor patio railings to the indoor stair railings or repeating the tiles from the Olympic-length lap pool when adding a hot tub. (Gehry told Platt that the one thing he wished had been added to the original design was a hot tub, to which Platt happily replied, "The hole's already dug, Mr. Gehry.")
The wading pool underwent multiple transformations before emerging as a tiled pond with platform for lounge chairs and built-in umbrella bases.
