This garden retreat hovers on the western slope of upper Queen Anne hill. The pavilion was imagined as a sculptural landscape element that could transform with the seasons and quickly change as the weather demands. Inspired by the impressive prospects of Elliott Bay, Magnolia and the Olympic Mountains to the west, the design delicately blends the pavilion into the client’s existing compound, protects the roots of a grand elm tree and respects neighbor’s views.
A project of Robert Edson Swain, Architecture + Design, Kit Kollmeyer's role was project manager.
Landscape and Pavilion
"The space transforms from closed and warm to an open literal integration of landscape — inside flows to outside!"
