Caspar Schols raised this pavilion with mobile layers of wood and glass in the garden of his parents’ house in the Dutch city of Eindhoven. Built on a budget of 20,000 euros, it can be adjusted to the needs of the moment: 6 meters long and 4 meters wide at its smallest, and stretchable to a maximum length of 12 meters. The timber truss structure is supported by 18 pillars of reinforced concrete. Crowned by a two-pitched roof clad with steel plates, the garden house was erected principally with Douglas fir wood, and has an inner shell of double glass. The independent layers of wood and glass are closed and opened as desired, in accordance with atmospheric conditions and the event or activity to be accommodated.
