The Welcome Pavilion provides space for ticketing, information and membership services at the inaugural Slow Food Nation event. The reclaimed shipping container, topped with plants and a windmill, creates an iconic image while providing the introductory public interface for the festival. Part billboard, part box-office, and part way-finding beacon, the pavilion announces the Slow Food movement’s dedication to sustainability and social responsibility.

“DRIFT proposes a triangular arrangement of eight foot diameter balloons that create a dynamic canopy over bourbon tastings, educational spaces for children and other groups. Jurors praised the project for its unexpected playfulness and relationship to historic river imagery. The design was interpreted by the panel of jurors as a type of inverted raft with romantic allusions to the journeys of Huckleberry Finn as well as the flatboats that once populated Louisville’s wharf in great numbers. — Kentucky Museum of Art & Craft blog”

In the old part of Amstelveen, stemming from the thirties, an office building and a pavilion together form the Bella Donna. The original buildings were designed in the sixties by the architect Webbers. They are situated on an island, surrounded by greenery and water and reachable via a bridge. The client was looking for a new office for his organization, when he came across the Bella Donna. Charmed by the green park-like setting he decided to settle in the pavilion, while the main building was re-designed to rent to others. This major renovation and expansion was the starting point to create a high-quality office near the Stadshart Amstelveen. The Bella Donna now has an exclusive look at a clearing in a woody area.

The site for this project is an existing 1960’s modern house with a 1980’s complementary addition. The Pool existed at the outset as well.
We were asked to design a new pool enclosure fence and Car Port that would be more consistent with the architecture of the house than the English trellis and dovecotes that existed when we began. All of this pre-dated the current owner.

The project anticipates the rearrangement of an already existent construction annexed to a small house, in a refuge pavilion with 50 m².
The implanting of the new building follows the limits of this existent construction in the west side, recycling small stone. The opposite side is rebuilt, realigned and, reusing the granite header from the best walls, is created an uncovered yard that serves as entrance and, at the same time, decompresses the proximity with the neighbouring house. This reconstructed element melts itself with the new construction interlinking the granite wall with horizontal slate plates of 3 cm in thickness placed in small stone cubes making a continuous grate that draws the building.

Orchid House Gateway Pavilion into Simpson Park Hammock. The structure is part of the first phase of a public-private partnership to revitalize the historic park and return it to the community. The pavilion embodies a symbiotic relationship between nature and architecture as the structure embraces and becomes interwoven within the diverse indigenous canopy of the hammock while minimizing ecological site impact.

The Head in the Clouds Pavilion on New York City’s Governors Island comes out of the desire to create a ‘place to dream in the city of dreams’. Made from 53,780 recycled plastic bottles – the amount, thrown away in New York City in 1 hour – it is a space where visitors can enter into and contemplate the light and color filtering through the ‘cloud’ from the inside, out.
