The brief was for lots of natural light with views to the beach or bush from every room. The timber pavilion is the first stage in a two stage project, where the use of sustainable materials and minimal disturbance to the site was essential. Space was a premium! The internal plan relies on interconnecting and overlapping of spaces. Large areas of external glazing achieves a perception of space by 'borrowing' views into neighbouring gardens. The structure is all recycled ironbark with areas of cedar cladding both externally and internally. The hardwood timber battens provide both privacy and sun protection. The skillion roof opens up to the north to maximize the solar gain and capture views up to the sky.
