NoArq | VN Garden Pavilion
I received an urgent call from a client asking me to transform a modest wooden frame shelter (covered with tile) into a renovated and bigger garden pavilion. It was a basic construction in a eclectic yard landscape serving a luxury villa. The house was surrounded by successive kitsch extensions. The request was to design a garden structure able to host a family wedding four months later. The challenge didn’t promise!
The object was fragile and too small. In the meantimes the clients bought the attached property and the new project gained a new front – new possibilities! The neighborhood buildings were (and are) humble and with variety in their forms, colors and facades. In the surrounding landscape emerges an assortment of constructive contamination and land occupation.
