Garden Folly is a garden pavilion designed by Collective Project for a private residence in Bangalore, India. This project transforms an unused 15’ x 50’ extension to a residential plot into a densely planted, private garden and reading pavilion. To provide privacy from the increasing noise of street traffic, the existing ground plane was excavated, creating a sunken path lined in black granite. Small niches line the path and are illuminated by diyas in the evening. The reading room pavilion, clad in thin strips of local reclaimed wood, acts as a portal framing two contrasting landscapes, a dense “wild” garden and a grass amphitheater/ seating area. On special occasions, the seating in the pavilion can be cleared to act as a stage for family performances.
