This small glass cabin is a research prototype for a comfortable if elementary retreat in a tense juxtaposition with harsh surrounding environment. The project, initiated by Guardian Glass is challenging thermal and structural abilities of glass.
The project brings together a walled courtyard and a swimming pool. The living area is a glass box contained within a concrete garden pavilion. By making the poolhouse entirely out of glass, with minimal framed windows, both inside and outside seems to disappear. Natural light is entering the pavilion by creating enclosed gardens.
This glass pavilion ties into a series of terraces, gardens, swimming pool and outdoor living spaces, extending the ranch house out into the landscape. The gardens and outdoor living spaces were designed along with the glass pavilion
