Text description provided by the architects. This project transforms an unused 15’ x 50’ extension to a private residential plot into a densely planted, garden and library.  The pavilion was conceptualized as an inhabitable piece of furniture embedded within a lush landscape.  The structure is clad in thin strips of locally reclaimed wood and acts as a portal framing two contrasting scenarios, a dense “wild” garden and a grass amphitheater/ seating area.

On special occasions, the seating in the pavilion can be cleared to act as a stage for family performances.  To provide acoustic separation from the noise of the adjacent street, the existing ground plane was excavated to create a sunken path lined in black granite.  Small niches line the walkway and are illuminated by diyas (small lamps) in the evening.
