Pool Pavilion

ERF 1079. Bedfordview. Johannesburg. South Africa.

Project Type: Leisure

Client: Veran Kathan
Program: Leisure
Status: Complete – August 2019
Value: R 3.5 Million (US $230 000)
Area: 70m²

We were approached to design an entertainment space for the family that maximises Johannesburg’s climate. A disused portion of the garden adjacent to the existing pool was identified as the most suitable location for the building. The design had to incorporate a large area for entertaining, a pizza oven ‘kitchen’, WC and spa area. The architecture took ideas from the existing home, but has a contemporary feel, and is positioned right on the boundary to save as much garden as possible. All this was done to create a relationship between inside and outside, garden and main house, and main house and pavilion.

In the interests of long-term financial value, second-dwelling consent was applied for so that the pavilion could be used as a cottage if required, thereby increasing the property value.
