The Reflective Summerhouse

Posted on: Monday, March 24, 2008

Spring has barely arrived here in NYC, but I am already fantasizing about how to spend my lazy, hazy days in the countryside this summer. 'The new Summerhouse' is literally a site-specific exercise in green reflection with its mirrored exterior and pared down, zen-like interior. Designed by Ullmayer Sylvester Architects in London, this structure seems to be an ideal annex for growing families as well as quiet time and studio practice. What a great way to feature one's gardening prowess over traditional housekeeping skills.

"An 8m long mirror reflects the diverse floral range and defies the solidity and proximity of the wall it is mounted on. Semi-transparent striped polycarbonate interferes with the shadows of the moving leaves above."
