Teppanyaki Pavilion makes a bold architectural statement, marrying functional considerations and architectural details. The clients, David and Sally, sought a major update to a pergola area and pool that was in need of refurbishment. Front of mind was creating an entertaining space that could become an all weather entertainer. The clients did not want a traditional barbeque, but requested a teppanyaki grill in the centre of the space.
We enlisted architect Chris Rowlands from RAD Studio to create the design, and partnered with the clients and Chris during the design phase. The hero of the space is the pavilion structure, crafted from exposed PFC beams and aluminum battens. The architectural battens cantilever over the pool, casting shadows throughout the day and providing a shaded section within the pool.
The light blue Cilento marble flooring was painstakingly paved three ways: in a crazy pave format with a KitKat linear border to the walkways, and upstanding with mitred corners. The teppanyaki grill from Bora is a focal point in the centre of the space with an undermount extraction fan concealed within the joinery and throughout the underside of the deck. Hidden recessed external motorised blinds are hidden within the spotted gum ceiling and motorised on guide wires, and black heatstrip electric radiant outdoor heaters with wireless remotes further ensure all weather use of the pavilion.
The result is a year round entertainer’s delight that will play host to many dinner parties and family gatherings for years to come.
