New South Wales
The Stealth Pavilion is situated in the garden of Caerleon, an important example of the Queen Anne style architecture. We have worked on its restoration and adaptation over a period of 12 years.
The current brief was to design a garden pavilion to house a home gymnasium that could be adapted to provide separate guest accommodation should needs change.
The design for a garden pavilion had numerous constraints as the house, garden, gate posts and five specific trees are all heritage-listed.
Our approach to limit impact on the heritage significance was to disguise the pavilion by locating its two wings within a grove of mature trees and by cladding it in bronze mirror to reflect the surrounding foliage.
