Text description provided by the architects. In 2003. due to the family growing, the client is buying the neighbouring house which is being reconstructed and attached to the existing one in 2006. Years after, a new commision; a separate living unit in a form of a garden pavilion, for the eldest child.
The garden annex was to be separated from the main house, still, providing a connection.
Even since the first reconstruction, the theme of the relations between the house and the nature are crucial, showing how function and approach depend on the purpose of the space, the time of setting up as well as the position on the site itself.
The position of the pavilion allows cinemascope screen facing the green as well as allowing the neccessary intimacy.
The pavilion is two storeys high, each comprising different functions. Upper, light, white and decorative is a place of work and rest and lower, dark and elementar, emphasizing construction aesthetics, houses the gym.
The basic pavilion construction is made of steel profiles and slab using the trapezoidal plate as permanent formwork.The facade and the roof are in composite panels, finished in aluminium plate. Inside the panels' grid on the backside of the pavillion, windows are positioned, mainly because of the ventilation.
