Project Description

The Owners wanted an urban getaway within their own house – a place of escape from their busy work lives. The starting point was the exterior: a garden pavilion in the form of a simple stainless steel frame with teak slats above: an “outdoor ceiling.” The imprint of this pavilion on the building creates a large opening in the existing brick box. The wood slatted ceiling and slate tile floor slide into the space creating a seamless indoor-outdoor connection. The result is a framed view of the interior – architecture as framed art. A folding wall sits within this opening, creating flexibility by expanding or enclosing the space. A teak storage wall and mahogany sculpted staircase sit along the sides, and a frosted glass operable wall conceals a new bathroom. The side walls unfold, revealing hidden audio-visual media (television,stereo) and storage. Radiant heat is buried within the floor slab, and all lighting is concealed: LED or fluorescent in coves.
