We detailed the design for this extension to a family home, in the hinterland behind the Gold Coast.

The original design by John Wilson included for a 3 pavilion home, of which 2 had already been constructed. These feature a significant amount of recycled materials which provide warmth and texture through the home. This first stage nestles into the hillside.
The new pavilion contrasts with the original home, as a modern black and white box sailing out into the view.
This is connected to the home with a rich family space, connecting entry, pool and landscape to each of the key areas of the home.
The details include a vented ridge to the top of the roof to help vent the heat in summer before it enters the home. Externally recycled Australian hardwoods are used to create a small deck linking the rooms to ground. The simple layout of the pavilion takes full advantage of the views captured as the rooms float out into the void.
