The former doctors-house consisted of a long range of connected rooms without relation towards the spacious, north orientated garden. The ground floor is stripped from redundant extensions and expanded with a simple structure, behaving like a pavilion.
The new structure keeps a small distance from the adjacent building. The volume becomes a garden pavilion within the restrictions of a row house. The specific position on the plot creates a narrow passage between the new volume and the neighbors. This allows daylight to penetrate deep into the main volume.
The plan is resulting in a range of interconnected spaces in which the banal complexity of a family house is emphasized. The new constellation allows all spaces to subtly blend together without losing their own character. A perforation in the existing ceiling of the main volume creates a second relationship with the upper floor and allows the light to enter the house from above and is linking both floors.
The pavilion construction consists of a concrete stone plinth that can be used as a seating. It also provides a fire place. The chimney and all other structural interventions are built within the same concrete stone. On top of the plinth an elegant pine wood curtain wall carries the ceiling. A simple and slender aluminum cladding, referring to Upper Lawn by the Smithsons, closes the volume and protects the soft structure and interior from the elements
