The assignment consisted in the construction of a guest pavilion as an extension of the main house. Our first thought was to create a shape clear and simple, a cuboid placed in the middle of the forest, changing as less as possible the surrounding characteristics, as if it had always been there.

The pavilion is defined by an U materialized in corten steel with a slat facade that creates a retreat inside, a place to be and contemplate. The entrance is in the ground floor. It’s like a kind sculptural void inside the ground, you enter on it, then you upstair through it to the pavilion.

The inside is understood as one space: a living- bedroom space and in one corner there’s the bathroom. The east, south and west façade are totally glazed, with a solar protection made of corten steel sliding lattice. The north façade has more controlled openings that illuminate the bathroom and the entrance staircase.

Being elegant and dignified is not only a matter for a small number of elites, it is the common responsibility and mission of the general public. To better record the life of elites, the designer avoids the single decoration style of piling up complex colors. Instead, concise expression which matches the gentle, modest and self-disciplined temperament of urban elites is adopted.
