Two Pavilions House Design, Modern House was designed by Johannsen and Associates, located in Sydney. To maximise the aspect of expansive views from the Spit Bridge to North Sydney, this five bedroom residence is conceived as two pavilion-style wings joined at the entry stairwell. With a protected central courtyard, shady terraces and a sunny pool loggia, the outdoor spaces open to different parts of the site and garden. Passive heating and cooling and natural ventilation help minimise use of A/C, and solar pool heating and 24,000L rainwater tanks have been integrated into this spacious family home. (more…)
Annie Residence, Beautiful House Design With Two Pavilions, designed by Bercy Chen Studio. Located in Austin, Texas, United States. The design was greatly influenced by different regions and cultures. Both the use of the roof as an outdoor living space and the shading devices are derived from Moorish architecture. The body of water and the spatial continuity between inside and outside was inspired by Asian architecture. while the structural transparency of the volumes and the minimalist aspect of the interior was derived from Japanese pavilions.

This Riva Hotel is designed by Foster and Partners, located in London, United Kingdom.
The hotel, developed by Riva Properties is characterised by a distinctive layered glass shell, which floods the public spaces with daylight. Articulated as a 13-storey structure, several levels are sunk into the ground, keeping the building’s profile low in response to the immediate surroundings.
The rooms are contained within six pavilions, linked by bridges and wrapped in a unifying glass envelope, which acts as a barrier to aircraft noise. The entrance lobby has a floating glass deck with views down to the sunken restaurant level, shallow pool and waterfall. This restaurant floor is accessed via a timber walkway and incorporates a business centre, as well as a variety of venues to eat and drink. The double-height conference facilities, which have their own reception to allow separate access from street-level, encircle a top-lit atrium that brings natural light deep into the building and down to the lower levels.
