The Flex Pavilion is a multi-functional standalone structure that was developed as a second phase to the Desert Wash Residence. This micro building acts as an office, guest house, gym, entertainment area, or however else homeowner sees fit. The simple material palette and massing allows for the pavilion to blend into the site while framing the natural wash that runs between the house and pavilion. To complement the Desert Wash Residence, the flex pavilion is composed of a similar palette of naturally oxidized steel, stucco, glass, and dark bronze metal accents. Floor to ceiling glass walls invite the desert in while framing views out while a cantilevered open roof extends from the pavilion, celebrating the Arizona sky while defining an outdoor garden and relaxation space. Outside, a sunken entertainment area allows for the homeowners and their guests to enjoy a fire on a cool Arizona evening while overlooking the wash. During the heavy monsoon storms, this zone converts to a retention basin to hold the extra rainwater before it filters through gabion walls filled with rocks from the site that also double as benches.
