This Modern interpretation of the garden gazebo attempts to create an invisible building while providing the occupants with shelter from the elements.
It is sited in a garden on the edge of a lake and has fantastic uninterrupted views out over the water and surrounding countryside.
It is constructed of 5 pieces of 12mm toughened glass bounded together with high grade structural silicon. Each pane of glass weighs in excess of 200 kilograms and required a crane and 6 men to ensure its safe delivery.
The dimensions of the cube are 2005x2005x2005mm grounding it to the year that it was built.
