This project transforms an unused 15’ x 50’ extension to a residential plot into a densely planted, private
garden and reading pavilion. To provide privacy from the increasing noise of traffic, the existing ground
plane was excavated to create a sunken path lined in black granite. Small niches line the path and are
illuminated by diyas in the evening.The reading room pavilion, clad in thin strips of local reclaimed wood,
acts as a portal framing two contrasting landscapes, a dense “wild” garden.
