Coffee being native and important to Coorg District, especially in this 100 Acre Estate, creation of the site was as crucial as the design. A large lake was formed from a small pond which existed around a concrete block manufacturing unit. The building uses this platform as its plinth and only a flying roof is added to emphasize the dramatic views from this location. The approach to the building is deliberately taken all the way around the water body to arrive through the rear of the building. The exterior deck with its original curing tanks are reused as coffee drying yards, and the hard landscape around is interspersed with coffee plants. The pavilion by itself is reduced to the bare minimum, in its simplest form, without taking anything away from the landscape.(Designed for Abdul Hameed Consultants)
