The Water Pavilion

The transformation of kathwada lake's edge mainly involved the concept of enhancing the existing components of the site like the pathways and trails made by the animals including the pause points at the latent centers. The pavilion at the edges of the lake with a very delicate connection served as a element to bridge the gap. The nature of the pathways and pavilion works according to the nature of lake's edge. The parts of main pavilion is divided on different levels and is connected with an exaggerated version of staircase.
