In addition to interior design, homeowners also make sure that their outdoor areas are nice and well designed as this is also a popular place to relax and meet up with family and friends. One way to do this is to add an outdoor structure like a gazebo or gazebo. For a simpler approach, you can just add a small seating area or an outdoor dining area where you can read a book, eat, or just relax. But for other rooms they prefer to add sculptural items and even turn some features into something sculptural like the fence or even the bench. This is the case outside of the Kaplan Family Pavilion in the City of Hope in Duarte, California. The building itself earned a LEED Platinum rating, but aside from the architectural design of the house, the outdoor seating is pretty impressive.
The Pavilion is a multipurpose space with an additional 7,000 square feet of new exhibition space, events, administrative offices, and storage. It uses the landscape to shape the built form and vice versa. Outside, two swaying, winding concrete walls were built to shield the entrances on either side of the pavilion while subtly kneeling and twisting to create seating that faces an irregular, elongated bench around the tree. These walls have 75 backlit LED plaques along the surface of both concrete walls. If you look closely you can see how beautiful and unique it is. Take a look at the seating on the concrete wall below.
