tamarleigh garden pavilion
project: Tamarleigh Garden Pavilion
location: Launceston, Tasmania
description: The little garden pavilion at Tamarleigh is a small scale project with some big ambitions. The original outbuilding known as the ‘Lighthouse’ at Tamarleigh once housed an ingenious and rare 1906 Benzoline gas-generator.
This small-scale project, to create a little garden pleasure pavilion, set in course two ambitious objectives at Tamarleigh. Firstly, it became a rescue mission to save the remains of the 1906 gas unit and, secondly it set about to create a new building that directly referenced the original 1906 ‘lighthouse’ outbuilding, in so doing creating a new place of reflection in the garden.
