Paradise Found: A Garage Transformed into a Garden Pavilion

June 30, 2017

A disused concrete garage becomes an idyllic garden pavilion, courtesy of Italian architects act_romegialli, who conjure up their own vision of Paradise Regained in the Rhaethian alps.

It’s paradise built upon juxtaposition; the architecture of a small industrial building against a verdant backdrop of vegetation. It’s a simple concept with an elegant execution.
