description: the folded penthouse project is rooftop pavillion proposal in the double bay area. it was conceived as a wrapping surface that enveloped the internal space. this wrap protects the volume from intense southerly weather fronts, whilst opening up to the 180 degree north views across the harbour and catches the cooling north easterly winds in summer. the project is of lightweight steel structure and is designed to fully open up during the summer months diffusing the threshold between indoor and outdoor.
