Extension of a late 1970's house. The project reassembles the existing introvert section of the house into a new extrovert section. The section reassembles the roof truss into a "folded" diaphragm construction that embraces the space, cantilevering from1/2 to 2/3 of the length of the section while the glazed facades take no load from the roof. The construction is anchored by an L-shaped concrete wall that is exposed to the inside. Externally the pavilion is clad in zink, while the connection corridor is clad in ash.
