From the architect. The pavillion, which was comissioned privately, was originally conceived and planned as a tea house.

In the course of the planning phase, the project evolved into a decorative and ornamental structure that was given a new purpose. It grew into a Folly of the kind that populated 18th century landscaped gardens in England and turned into an edifice without a clear definition - a larger than lifesize abstract piece of furniture.

Niches in the facade, the roof as well as the interior, where cushions await, invite reposal.

The exterior consists of planed boards of larchwood, whose smoothness contrast with the weathering process.

No flashing (cover sheet), socket or visible attic, detract from the sharp edges and solidity of the structure - in part to ensure that the aging process will appear completely homogeneous.

When not in use, the pavillion is closed with shutters made of highly polished stainless steel.

In this way depth is achieved not only by structural means but in an imaginary and illusional way using the reflecting qualities as a mirror.

That roof deck looks so wicked. I'd love to enjoy sitting in the sun off that bad boy. Whoever owns this little pavilion is a lucky person.
