A Fun Way of Preserving History
Located right on the waterfront of Puget Sound in Washington, this renovated structure awaits you. Graypants (architectural firm) won an award for the gorgeous transformation of this age old beauty. It once was a garage in a shattered condition around the time of World War II, but more recently its ruins were remodeled into this gorgeous contemporary pavilion to properly regard the memories which it holds. The pavilion was reconstructed using most of the salvaged material from its own predecessor building, believe it or not!

This transformation is a glowing example of honoring the past while embracing the present. Graypants transformed this post World War II garage overlooking Puget Sound in to an extroverted modern pavilion. While dismantling the property, they discovered that much of the original structure was worthy of reuse for its worn personality and durability. The entrance is a sliding Corian storage unit and your first physical interaction with the structure. Flooring, made of reclaimed wood from the former structure, conceals beds, lounges, and storage that rest underneath. Opposite the entrance, a vertically folding wall of glass opens to the gravel patio. Wood slats run horizontally across the framing. Narrow sections of copper sheathing anchor and frame each glass walled gable end. Inside these panels are wrapped in canvas that can be lit with your mobile phone.
