Creativity often needs a place to feel isolated, a personal space to get away from the hectic pace of the city and let the imagination fly. With that in mind, Architensions -the New York based architecture and urban design studio dedicated to explore the relationship between architecture and social development in contemporary cities- have created Writing Pavilion, a haven of peace to get inspired annexed to the house of an art involved couple.
Writing Pavilion arises on a concrete plinth, a rough surface combined with planters and pine wood floor, wich creates a mixture of materials and textures in contrast with its black cedar exterior. Its indoor design, entirely cover by pine plywood, generates a warm and bright ambiance that invites to stay. Minimally furnished with a chair and a folding table, Writing Pavilion maintains an airy sense despite its reduced dimensions.
Writing Pavilion is designed as a peaceful and cosy haven to get lost and let creativity flow
Writing and drawing, as well as any other creative activity, requires a comfortable space with a good natural lighting, which should not strike directly to the user but flood all over the place. Writing Pavilion geometry, not random at all, is specially thought to capture and introduce sunlight inside in an optimal way. Its openings have direct views towards the garden, the tree and the sky; evocative sceneries to boost creativity and make ideas come to life.
