Wicker Mesh Pavilion by DJA

Located in the heart of Jardins De l'Europe in Annecy, France, the timber/wicker grid pavilion is a perfect combination of traditional craftsmanship and contemporary architecture. The space offers fantastic views of the surrounding nature and thus creates a shaded space for people coming into the park to shelter from the scorching summer sun. SURFACES REPORTER (SR) is providing here more design details of the pavilion. Scroll down.
