This new pavilion appears far removed from its inner-city locale, laced with lush foliage. Ideal entertaining spaces unfold from inside to outside, letting gatherings spill out onto the alfresco dining area and lap pool. Featuring full-height black steel glazing, the new pavilion’s raw materiality strengthens its connection with the traditional brick facade. “The architectural skillion roof maximises the garden view and sunlight in the space, creating a transparent connection with the garden,” Nicholas says.
The Techne Architecture + Interior Design team also created a sense of tranquillity in the family spaces through a consistent material palette. The timber ceiling highlights the roof form from within, mirrored by the timber cabinetry in the kitchen, which is repeated in the master bedroom wardrobe, alongside timber wall panelling. Black fixtures and joinery handles let the black steel framing feel right at home. Grey and white tones are punctuated by exciting pops of colour like the eight Gubi Beetle dining chairs; echoing Techne’s bold and playful approach.
