The dominant scale of the Dining Pavilion is downplayed through the day as they eye is drawn through its generous rows of doors to the ocean beyond. The dining area has tables within arranged at three levels, ensuring every seat enjoys unbroken views. At night the scale is again disguised, and a surprising intimacy is achieved, by the focussed lighting of tabletops and by the rhythmic arrangement of candle-lit niches.
The Living Pavilion, despite its similarly grand scale, achieves the same intimacy, offering guests a combination of a comfortable lounge bar and an inviting library, where filament lamps mix with candle flames against a backdrop of warm wood screens and claret-red columns.
In contrast to these spaces, outside of the halls, the canopy of a giant Kumbuk tree provides shade to a more rural dining experience, where reclaimed local hardwood has been employed to achieve an appropriately rustic appearance for the furniture.
