A sheltered haven in a residential home with unparalleled views of the Mother City's mountainous landmark, Table Mountain.Cape Town-based architect firm Metropolis has designed a concrete pavilion as part of the renovation of a villa in Constantia, a suburb immersed in greenery. The pavilion is a sheltered haven in the garden, featuring seating, dining areas, and a suspended chimney..
The pavilion is overlooked by the main house, and is made up of series of thick concrete slabs, which together combine a shelter that extends out from the hillside. Structurally, the roof canopy rests on walls at the rear and is supported by a slender pillar at the front, creating a sweeping space underneath.
A beautifully minimal concrete inspiration.
