Grotto is a pavilion for De Oude Warande in Tilburg, Netherlands. It is a baroque folly, a screen, a cave, a grave and a functional pavilion. Situated in the heart of a baroque woodland, it acts as a meeting place and café. It is constructed of a steel structure with black mirror panels and polystyrene concrete rendered rock. At night the black mirror glass that disappears against the woodland during the day, falls away to reveal the outside of the grotto’s ‘brain’.
