Wirra Willa Pavilion is a minimalist one Cottage by the lake – the richly glazed facade opens to the beautiful landscape. The owners of the property hired the architects from Matthew Woodward Architecture to build a modern retreat for the family. The villa should be a place of rest and relaxation, where the family can enjoy being together and spend many wonderful hours outdoors.
Cottage on the lake with an idyllic location in the middle of nature
That Cottage by the lake has the shape of a cube made of glass, which opens up to the beautiful landscape and lets plenty of sunlight into the interior. Inside the glass construction, wooden interior walls shield the homeowner’s private area. So the building was practically divided into two – the spacious living area including kitchen and dining area and the bedrooms and bathrooms. The wild beauty of the surrounding nature can be enjoyed from every part of the house – floor-to-ceiling windows offer views of the lake and the nearby forest. A small pool was installed on the spacious wooden terrace.
Cottage on the lake – puristically furnished
That Cottage by the lake is puristic and economical. The wooden floor and the wall cladding / also made of wood / create a visual connection between the individual areas. In the living room, a large wood fireplace creates a cozy atmosphere and offers the possibility of using the villa in winter. The bedroom is only furnished with a double bed and built-in bedside tables. The simple furniture allows the beautiful nature to come into its own.
