The pavilions are located near the western entrance of the Lagravère Park in Colombes. This longitudinal park follows the river Seine, an essential feature of the park which extends over 2 kilometers. The buildings are cleverly inserted in the landscape. The three constructions appear one after the other from behind the trees. The first pavilion whose function is to welcome visitors is situated closest to the entrance and opens onto the avenue and the future tramway station; the second pavilion, the shop, is a little further away along the riverside path and, lastly, the public toilets are located deep into the park, behind the trees.

The open gables of the three buildings are like windows onto the landscape. Their elongated yet discreet volumetric shape prolonged by terraces or porches, allows for a visual connection of the different volumes despite their distance from each other in the park. The curvilinear form is reinforced by the folds of the wooden and stainless steel envelope.
