The concept of the pavilion is based on the realization of a non-invasive structure, a SHADOW of the existing house. This is like a canvas for the game of light and for the contrast between the old and the new, yet it is embedded in the landscape through its texture.

Treated and painted black wood is the main material used for the construction of the pavilion and the tower (structure – fir tree wood, roof – burned wood by Japanese technique Yakisugi).

New wood structures can be made quickly, simply and do not involve high costs. For this, a small number of modules will be used. The foundations are Krinner type, the bedroom windows tabacher type.

Conceptul pavilionului este bazat pe realizarea unei structuri neinvazive, o UMBRA a casei existente. Aceasta este ca o panza pentru jocul luminii si pentru realizarea contrastului intre vechi si nou, cu toate acestea incadrandu-se in peisaj prin textura sa.

Lemnul tratat si vopsit negru este materialul principal folosit pentru constructia pavilionului si a turnului (structura – lemn de brad, invelitoare – lemnul ars prin tehnica japoneza Yakisugi).

Structurile noi din lemn se pot realiza rapid, simplu si nu implica costuri ridicate. Pentru asta se vor folosi un numar redus de module. Fundatiile sunt de tip Krinner, geamurile la dormitoare sunt de tip tabachera.

Shou Sugi Ban (or Yakisugi) is an ancient Japanese exterior siding technique that preserves wood by charring it. The process involves charring the wood, cooling it, cleaning it, and finishing it with a natural oil. Although time consuming, the final product is not only gorgeous, with its rich, silvery finish; the charred wood also resists fire, rot, insects, and can last up to 80 years.
