For a private residential client in Hertfordshire, conceived as a lightweight timber pavilion in the woods with two interlocking volumes creating a private, sunken south facing courtyard.
The low horizontal form of the building is juxtaposed with a vertical rhythm of the elevation treatment with void elements set in a layered, timber screen, breaking up the mass, solid shapes. Upon approach, a visual ambiguity is created between site and dwelling, between light and dark, creating glimpses towards and though the trees.
