'the garden shelf' by lausanne-based firm dreier frenzel architecture is a summer pavilion
for a family in geneva, switzerland. composed of three, distinct volumes arranged in
an offset manner, the small concrete structure directs its focal point to the immediate
site - the garden - rather than the more distant view from the slope which it resides on.


in context

hugging the natural topography of the plot, the design scales down the garden in
a terraced fashion. the individual boxes vary in size and host appropriate programs
inside: the smallest form holds storage while the larger 'rooms' accommodate a kitchen
and a spacious seating area. the interior is connected for the inhabitants to step up or
down between functions. when not in use, a system of wooden shutters that run along
the open faces enable the shelter to be enclosed.
