In support of the residents with a disability, a wooden pavilion is build next to the caring institute in Marum. The pavilion contains a tea-house and workplace. Together with the other buildings on the former farm-plot it has a strategic position, with the back towards the neighbor-plot and with view on the goats, chickens, rabbits and birds which are cared for by the residents. Only the stable of the former farm is still intact. This is completely renovated and transformed into an institute for mental disabled persons.
The volume seems to fit in perfectly. The somewhat strange shape is part of the whole historic plot, because of the right position, measurements, size and materialization. The pavilion is located on the position of the former planned fence. That’s mainly the reason of the simple fence-like appearance. By ‘expanding’ the fence in the third dimension, a volume is created that will house different functions. The tea-house is opened daily for visitors.
