defined by a oversized flat roof that sits atop a timber-slatted volume is the new st. gerlach pavilion designed by mecanoo architecten. situated in a country estate near maastricht, the netherlands, the pavilion is a welcome addition to the other historic buildings that date from the 1600’s on site; a château, a church, the farmstead and the manor farm.

today, the estate is a unique destination offering a luxury hotel, restaurant and spa. using materials that harmonise with its location, mecanoo architecten’s pavilion design features a cantilevered roof which gently curves around the perimeter. marlstone, bluestone and oak have been put in use and inside, the three multifunctional meeting rooms can be used separately or together and in turn, offers a location for variety of functions and events.

as well as the pavilion, mecanoo has overhauled the manor farm to offer as small meeting rooms and a café. the barn-like setting is opened to locals and leads onto an intimate village square serving as the buffer zone between the pavilion and the manor farm.
