Those who want to relax on this floating wooden pavilion in Malta can only reach it by swimming or taking a boat. Completely detached from the shoreline, the Antiroom II is a circular space with curtains for walls that blur the line between sea, sky and architecture. It was built by students from different European countries during the EASA 2015 Links workshop in Valletta.
Antiroom II floats like an island off the coast of Malta. It is unreachable by land and can be accessed only by boat and swimming. The circular wooden structure forms an endless platform for sunbathing and relaxing and creates a small, secure water pool that’s shielded from outside views.
The structure is lightweight and slowly floats on the surface of the water. The design team made it semi-transparent by enveloping it in sheer curtains that dance in the wind and blur the line between the inside and the outside. “One can enter its core, contemplate its structure and express his unity with the sky and the cosmos.”
