Fragrant Lake Lifestyle & Art Pavilion provides a community space where people can spend time together. It features a range of zones with different functions including reading nooks, communication hubs and a theatre, all seamlessly brought together under one roof.
The ground and walls are made of the same earth tone material, while the bricks and stones wrapping the book tower are also produced locally. A plethora of green plants, wooden features and natural colours and fabrics provides an attractive contrast to the stone walls and floors. The building uses two contrasting materials: a concrete base forms the foundation, juxtaposed with a steel roof. Both are softened through the use of earth-like fabrics and tones.
The impressive roof configuration features suspended cornices and panoramic viewing platforms looking out across the lake and surrounding landscape. While considered placing of windows and skylights bring the outside in and maximise natural light.
