we are currently designing a sizeable recreational spa retreat to the rear garden of a large property in richmond, featuring a gym, a sauna and steam room, a toilet facility, a relaxation room and a separate office space at the rear. the summer room has windows to overlook the adjacent play area with a sunken trampoline. the u-shaped structure forms an internal roof protected courtyard with a sunken hot tub. large sliding doors open towards a full width terrace in front connecting to the 11m long open pool area. this garden pavilion will be constructed from a timber laminated prefabricated structure. solid walls are clad in dark vertical timber, contrasting with the lightness of fixed frameless glass and framed sliding doors and windows. a metal canopy and vertical timber fins provide shading and layering to the facades. the project will be implemented during summer 2021.
