Miller Design designed the 'Anderson Pavilion' a home pavilion in Modesto, California.

The pavilion is an open space during the summer, but come wintertime, it transforms into a cozy getaway, complete with a wood-burning fireplace and an infinity edge hot tub made from stainless steel. The multi-functional space features a ground floor garage and an urban retreat on the upper level. The structure is constructed from corten, masonry and redwood that complement the main house, a 1920 bungalow, and correspond with the rest of the neighborhood.

The architects added some defining features that set the pavilion apart from the rest, such as a brass fire pole and steel studders located outside the guest suite that transform into a ladder leading to the third floor loft.
