This private retreat consists of two glass pavilions and a small pool. Located almost an hour north of Kuala Lumpur, the steeply sloped site consists of a valley, stream and remnant rainforest. The design draws from the local vernacular of simple structures sitting lightly on the landscape, so the pavilions are raised on stilts within audible range of the stream. Steel and glass were chosen to celebrate the context and cause least disruption, enabling the buildings to disappear among the trees and blurring boundaries between internal and external space. Landscape walls are of gabion and dry wall construction, using local materials.
