Text description provided by the architects. Writing and drawing are activities that contribute to the creation of a parallel imaginative world and to producing infinite options whenever a condition of isolation or immersive solitude is needed. The small space is located in the lush and protected garden of a creative couple involved in the arts.

Nested on a concrete plinth, the pavilion employs the use of black stained cedar for the exterior cladding and natural pine plywood for the interior. The pavilion’s sectional shape acts as a device to bring natural light inside, and induces optimal conditions for the human eye.

The room is minimally furnished with a chair and a folding writing table; the warm interior wood becomes the unifying element between interior and exterior. The roof is conceived as a large sloped light well porous towards the trees and the sky; one elevation is dominated by a large opening looking out toward the garden. The specific phenomenological conditions of this retreat space make ideas come to life through a synthesis of material and spatial imagination.

Architensions is an innovative multidisciplinary architecture and urban design studio dedicated to exploring the relationship between architecture and social development in contemporary cities. Through a process of reading the existing “genius loci”, the studio anchors each project to site specificity, with special sensibility for new buildings placed into contexts of particular cultural and historic importance.

The reading of the context allows for an understanding of a place in time and space, with our minds and as well as our senses.
