Enter a Tuscan-inspired entertaining space for a family in South Australia, by local design firm GSiD.

Removed from the main house, The Pavilion is a tactile feast, designed as a secondary entertaining area for a large family. Through the gentle layering of textural, natural materials, GSiD have paved the way for a relaxing environment to effortlessly entertain poolside, at any time of the year. 

The structure and colour palette of the new building needed to compliment the contemporary architectural foundation of the existing dwelling, including a curved rammed earth wall. Inside the pavilion, arched doorways and storage nooks are a nod to the home’s facade, linking each space seamlessly. Polished plaster walls are reminiscent of the concrete exterior while beige stone flooring from Eco Outdoor makes its way from the outside in, anchoring the building as part of the overall garden scape.

A cosy Kalahari Rug by Armadillo lines the indoor living area, bordering the outdoor patio. Modern black aluminium steel-frame sliding doors maintain a harmonious connection with the outdoors and matt-black door fixtures from Pittella are a refined interruption to the creamy colour palette. In the kitchen, Turco Argento by CDK Stone is paired with whitewashed timber veneers, repeated in the backlit floating shelves that house various earthy MUD Australia ceramics.

Carefully considered detail is evident around every corner of the pavilion. Custom curved timber architraves frame the bespoke doorways and Brodware aged brass tapware fixtures fulfil the earthy palette, alongside ornate ceramics and textiles to create a warm atmosphere. The built-in barbecue with adjacent under-mount sink and storage is essential for every Australian entertainer’s backyard, complete with relaxed seating.

Lovingly realised by GSiD, The Pavilion quietly evokes a sense of homeliness through a soothing spectrum of colours and textures, while providing space to entertain with friends and family. 

The Brodware Yokato Wall Set in Statute Bronze in the bathroom.

A black pull-handle by Pittella completes the wooden sliding door in the living area, accompanied by a Kalahari Rug in Natural & Pumice by Armadillo.
