Gazebo for TV show by Za Bor Architects

Russian architects Arseniy Borisenko and Peter Zaytsev have completed an outdoor kitchen for a yacht captain that resembles the broken-up hull of a boat.

The spiralling larch pavilion near Moscow was created as part of a television show called Dachniy Otvet, which translates to The Village Talks, and invites different designers and architects to carry out surprise renovations for volunteer clients.

The faceted helical structure comprises 14 chunky planes, each formed of larch planks glued together.

A steel chimney bursts through the ceiling of the pavilion to provide an extract for a brick barbeque.

Other pavilions recently featured on Dezeen include a seaside temple of oriented strand board and a riverside structure where inhabitants can hear what’s going on beneath the water’s surfacesee more stories about pavilions on Dezeen.

Here's some more information from Za Bor Architects:


Gazebo for TV show

The project has been developed specially for popular TV show «Dachniy Otvet» (Eng: «The village talks»). The idea of the show is that for those owners of country houses and cottages, who agreed to participate in the experiment, the invited designers or architects do re-planning of a part of their village.

The important moment is that the house owners pay nothing for reconstruction, but at the same time they can't influence the result, so it comes always unexpected for them. The architects in their turn try to offer the most original solutions.

The object here is fairly typical suburban area, with garden trees belonging to the captain of the yacht, who enjoys cooking on the grill with his family and a number of friends.

Architects have suggested to make a small-size self-supporting structure consisting of fourteen planes made of larch white-tinted wood.

The gazebo has the helical structure resembling a sea wave, with an area for feasts (dining zone) and, in the distant second part separated by a small air «gap», is a barbecue area with a chargrill made of brick and steel. Architect's concept for the construction is transparency and openness which inspires a contact between man and nature, especially because of surroundings: a green lawn and wonderful fruit trees giving an abundant harvest each fall.

Neutral tints of the gazebo are drowning in intense colours of the garden - from the lush green in summer to yellow and red in autumn, and bringing together a rather complex and aggressive form with pastoral Moscow suburbs, allowing it to exist peacefully within the site context.

Arseniy Borisenko and Peter Zaytsev — the architects, are making comments on the project: «We wanted to develop a complex dynamic structure that would not only perform its functions – gazebo and chargrill area, but would preserve the existing context of the site.

Although our project is a complex structure consisting of 14 flat segments, we used neutral colours and natural larch wood.

This helps, on the one hand, to present an object effectively and emphasize its structural features, on the other – to leave it in the existing suburban context, to fuse in the greenery of the garden, to please the eye, not to offend it.

The gazebo planes are an excellent protection from the wind and rainfall, so we hope its new owners will be able to use it not only in summer but in winter as well.

    …will we get to see pictures of this "minimalistic waterproof (?) roof" after the first winter ? ( … just curious)

    It is not about winter, it is about cool design.

      …speaking as a designer, not an architect…i hope !?

    This is beautiful, and a really interesting take and redefinition of a gazebo.
