A pavilion style design was the best way to take advantage of the natural elements of this site. Three pavilions were created connected by glass louvered breezeways, being two pavilions roofed by two opposing floating curved Ritek roofs while the middle one being a gable roof pavilion. Multiple decks were created for entertaining and for outdoor living, connecting the inside spaces with the outdoors and the veggie garden. Rammed earth blade walls and polished concrete floors were used as thermal mass components.
