Gorgeous Miesian-inspired glass pavilion floats above a natural dam

The glazed 72-square-meter pavilion features a minimalist natural materials palette comprising vertical timber slats, steel, concrete, and sandstone. The interior spaces include a sunken spa and living room on the cantilevered end; a bathroom, kitchen, and storage space in the middle; and a bedroom with a folding bed on the opposite end. The timber flooring is made from native Australian tallowwood and the walls are covered in locally quarried Somersby white sandstone. The pavilion has a northeast orientation to optimize solar gain conditions in the winter and natural cross winds, which pass through the dwelling through the sliding glass panels. The building took approximately eight months to complete.
