Project Description

Contemporary garden pavilion design in Dorset.

Completed in 2014, this contemporary garden pavilion in Dorset was designed as an entertaining space separate from the main house. Full height glazing allows for spectacular views across the natural swimming pond and wildflower meadow garden.

To maximise the relationship between internal and external spaces large expanses of glass and glass to glass corner glazing gives unimpeded views of the landscape setting and provide easy access into the garden with large sliding doors.

The design intent was for a low key high quality contemporary building that sits lightly in this natural rural setting, with the effect that the building appears to float above the ground.  The extent of glazing also emphasises the lightweight structure adding emphasis to the design intent.

This Dorset-based contemporary pavilion incorporates a sedum roof adding to the buildings sustainability credentials.
