AP with Aude Franjou: Dining Pavilion, Malta

AP with Aude Franjou: Dining Pavilion, Malta

Attaching an elegant dining pavilion to a heavily built house is an intelligent but scarcely original move. What makes this project special is the approach to shading, so necessary in the hot sun of Malta. A colonnade of steel columns supports a fabric awning, but the pièce de résistance
is the concertina-like glass screen to the south and east facades, decorated with ‘trees’ made by French artist Aude Franjou from flax twisted around hemp, then woven on to a steel framework. Varying the tension of the weaving introduces the desired curvature.
