ASSEMBLY HOUSE | Assembly House is designed as a residential village knit together by garden spaces and pathways. Rather than a house with a garden around it, this is a garden with a collection of pavilions placed within it. Each piece takes advantage of views, creates privacy, and defines exterior garden spaces. As with the site planning, the architecture of each building is designed to express individual elements thus clarifying and celebrating the assembly. The sliding walls and intimate scale of each building allow them to open directly to the garden on all sides. One is guided sequentially through the entry courtyard into the main pavilion. From here the long pool extends toward the ocean and draws it back into the house.
