Baron Summer House by John Pawson

Posted By Daily Icon On July 29, 2008 @ 2:00 AM In Architecture | No Comments

Built as a summer house for Fabien Baron, one’s first impression is of its virtual invisibility. The design draws significantly on local vernacular models which are transformed through the introduction of elements of new materiality and detailing, to create volumes with a contemporary quality of abstraction whose interiors are bathed in light and views. Entry is via a lofty space framed by a pair of walls finished in fine vertical slats of dark stained timber and set below steeply angled roof planes.
