Paul Archer to build 'cloaked' pavilion - images

Work is about to start on Paul Archer Design's proposals for a contemporary pavilion in the grounds of an old Edwardian school in Middlesex.

The mirror-clad pavilion, made from concrete and timber, is mounted on legs that accommodate the site's topography and avoid the roots of nearby trees.

The architect claims that the mirror-cladding 'cloak' aims to make the structure 'invisible' by reflecting its surroundings - mainly dense foliage.

Internally, a tall workspace tapers to a skylight, with glass sliding doors framing a south-facing view over London.

The London-based architect came to prominence in last year's AJ 40 Under 40 exhibition at the V&A.

The practice received the go-ahead for the scheme in October.
