Writing pavilion




    A marvellous, minimally furnished, garden office in Brooklyn, New York, from Architensions used for writing and drawing by its owners. Here's what the architects say about it:
    "Nested on a concrete plinth, the pavilion employs the use of black stained cedar for the exterior cladding and natural pine plywood for the interior. The pavilion’s sectional shape acts as a device to bring natural light inside, and induces optimal conditions for the human eye. Tthe warm interior wood becomes the unifying element between interior and exterior. The roof is conceived as a large sloped light well porous towards the trees and the sky; one elevation is dominated by a large opening looking out toward the garden. The specific phenomenological conditions of this retreat space make ideas come to life through a synthesis of material and spatial imagination."

    1. I so love how architects write: "The specific phenomenological conditions of this retreat space make ideas come to life through a synthesis of material and spatial imagination." If that's true I want one.
