Description

The forest is dominant and dense, the housing distributed evenly but randomly through the forest. A naturalistic waterway is formed, and a single, meandering road introduced. The homes are uniform, square pavilions, with internal courtyards – the only private space – comprising a continuation of the forest canopy. The temporary pavilion is a larger variant on this courtyard concept.

Jury assessment

A sympathetic plan with indisputable qualities, including well-conceived floor plans and respectful woodland management. As a pavilion, however, the design has insufficient power of expression.
