“The design is conceived as a pavilion – an assembly of ground, wall, and roof planes – that works together with the tree line to edit out the view of the bungalow beyond. The versatility of wood allows the pavilion to be at once opaque and transparent and at times luminous, and serves as the main focal point of the yard, instead of the neighbouring house,” Amantea said.
The rear pavilion structure was blocking views from a neighbouring property features slats of Douglas Fir screen, this boards provide privacy, outdoor living spaces, and amenities for a new swimming pool. The change room features bench seating, next to the change room is a rainfall shower that’s partially open to the outdoors to brings a natural atmosphere inside.
