The new pavilions are flat roofed structures, sheathed in a taught filigree timber skin thereby forming a counterpoint to the massive crenulated bulk of the existing stone clad building.

The new building houses two parts, a recreational component including a swimming pool, pool pavilion and tennis court and a utilitarian component to house a garage, store rooms and office.

Two covered walkways provide light connections between the garage pavilion and house.

Inspiration from architect:

create a dynamic relationship between the old and new and to provide an architectural edge to the hill top and in doing so create positive sheltered spaces between the new and old.
