The arbor, a living space project meant to accommodate a family and her guests, theoretically up to 15 people,a simple pavilion design that caught our attention will be presented today. The arbor accommodates many features, the floor plan of this pergola design being split into three main zones, one being the kitchen furnace, the second being the dinning room-drawing room followed by the terrace-scene.
Its meant to gather people around a long table in console, this table being inserted in the overall structure, being unable to move or change in any way, surpassing the decorative boundary into becoming a structural object as well, being the heart and soul of pergola, driving people`s attention and perception towards it from first glance, literally pulling them around it .
This one of the few cases in which the architect managed to integrate a decorative object in the structure and make it functional without the help of an engineer, and this should be much appreciated, architects should never loose their engineering structural skills learned in the university.
What do you think about this pavilion, do you have any exquisite pergola designs that you would like to share with us?
