Pavilion – the entertainer’s extension
Adelaide has its fair share of historic homes, but few would boast a contemporary extension as theatrical as Pavilion.
One pavilion, known as the Kids’ Retreat, comprises a kitchen, dining, lounge and laundry. The other is called the Parents’ Retreat. It also has a kitchen, dining and lounge, but with a powder room instead of a laundry.
Both retreats have access to a pool, tennis court, steam room, sauna and gym. They also share two bathrooms.
The timeless, natural and neutral tones of the materials palette are lifted by the design choices of Enoki. Considered colour accents are restrained enough to work seamlessly with the architecture, while also providing a playful ‘ping’.
Following a brief that demanded a balance of functionality, durability and beauty, the design team employed discipline and precision to deliver spaces that serve as theatrical sets for highly engaging scenes, with the furniture acting as artistic props.
Defining each retreat is a unique Oblica fireplace. Antefocus is a true design classic, the first wall-hung fireplace created by the legendary founder of Focus, Dominique Imbert. Positioned beside an oil painting by Guy Maestri, it transforms the living space into a gallery.
The second retreat features the elegant Filiofocus. Suspended from the ceiling in front of the luxe modular sofa, clean simplicity makes it the sculptural centrepiece of the living zone.
Every detail of Pavilion has been considered. The result is an astonishing home that feels thoroughly resolved.
