Pavilion Park in Irvine is the first community at The Great Park Neighborhoods for Five Point Communities. Chameleon Design was brought on board to design the Information Center, which they wanted to have a warm feel with elements of folly.
In the building itself, we created a “beacon wall” of TV screens, which all run a loop of the community amenities, to be the star of the room. We flanked the reclaimed wall of paneling with large framed succulent walls and kid friendly rockers surround the tree in the center. Custom chairs that were designed to remind you of gardeners gloves, natural branches, crystals, coral, and crystals also help to bring the outdoors in.
Outside we used a mixture of wood and metal furniture. Adirondack chairs made of wine barrels, vintage wood chairs, cream metal gliders and wood stools were sprinkled along the low wall near the outdoor fireplace to allow for places to sit and talk. Near the basketball courts we commissioned custom tables made of slabs of wood and cool metal legs and outside the green house we placed two long gathering tables with galvanized stools. The pool deck also has these elements along with wide chaise lounges made of vintage beam wood. Wind chimes, stone owls, metal balls created with wine barrel strapping and stone rain chains hang here and there for natural folly.
