Pavilion House is located within a residential neighborhood in the hills east of downtown Los Angeles. Unlike the two- and three-story houses nearby, this dwelling is a collection of pavilions that integrate into the landscape. The design creates a fragmented, domestic space that allows for access to natural light, outdoor terraces and panoramic views throughout the house. There are five pavilions on the site; each accommodating different programs and rotating according to topography and views. These pavilions are prefabricated and interconnected by site-built, transparent halls that function as interstitial spaces. The varied, shed roof forms further distinguish each pavilion, articulating a soft assemblage within the landscape.
