This additions project is located amongst jarrah and peppermint forest and grafts a contemporary pavilion onto an existing timber framed and clad house.

The new work consists of a reading / living room and master bedroom with bathroom and is linked to the existing house by a transparent gallery.

Large sliding panel doors that disappear into the wall cavity allow a flow of space and views between the existing house and the new reading room and then through the bedroom. A frameless corner window in the bedroom enables panoramic views into the bushland surrounding the Hidden Pavilion Retreat.

3m high sliding doors in the reading room link the indoors to the full height of the trees to the east and an amazing early morning light show through the trunks. Vertical cladding in dark grey tones mimic the trunks of the trees and settles the new work into the bushland setting.
