Ravelli House is a modest pavilion-like addition, designed for someone who wanted a light and comfortable space to be enjoyed while alone or in the company of friends.
The project places a modest timber framed pavilion at the back of the house. The structure is detached on three sides and lifted up from the ground to underpin its lightness. This counterpoints the heavyness of the existing stone structures surrounding it. The skillion roof opens up toward the south to profit from the warm winter sun. The east facing facade opens up towards the garden and soaks up the morning sun. It takes in distant views of sky and blossoming apple trees on the land beyond.
