Pavilion, or as the Enoki team calls it, “the ultimate entertainer’s extension”. It takes the form of two separate pavilions off the end of a historical home; the ‘kid’s retreat’, consisting of a kitchen, dining, lounge area and laundry, and the ‘parent’s retreat’, consisting of a second kitchen, dining, lounge area and additional powder room. Shared amenities include a pool, tennis court, steam room, sauna and gym, plus two bathrooms.
Susanna reveals the brief for Pavilion drove a design narrative characterised by balance. Functionality and durability take precedence, followed very closely by beauty and timelessness, two sides of the same coin. Discipline and precision are what allowed the Enoki team to wield both successfully. “The clients conveyed a passion for functional, durable and beautiful materials – but more importantly, they had a desire for exact, seamless and integrated detailing,” Susanna says.
