The residential pavilion was built as an extension of an existing residential building – more precisely a beach-style bungalow, built in 1923. A smooth transition from the old bungalow to the new structure was achieved through the use of the same materials and colors. The contemporary structure clad in corten steel seems to exist in full harmony with its surroundings.

The new living cube is divided into two floors – the ground floor offers parking space for up to two vehicles and is equipped with a hydraulically operated and automatically quick-lock garage door made of Corten steel. The upper floor is an airy, spacious room and includes a room with entertainment function and a guest suite. The industrial-style pavilion has large windows on three sides, offering beautiful views of the street and the inner courtyard, as well as natural cross ventilation.
