A Pavilion is a Space for Outdoor Gathering

The architecture of a pavilion is unique in that it is open rather then being enclosed. It is built as a separate freestanding building to extend the living space or is attached to the main building and customized to blend in. It is not only meant to be a hub of activity and entertainment but is also to protect its inhabitants from rain or hot sun. It is a place for family and friends to gather to dine, party, relax, read, play games, sit in comfortable outdoor furniture and watch nature, appreciate the open air feeling, exercise, or other activities.

 

The Structure

A wood pavilion is a stylish backyard outdoor structure that brings a traditional elegance and charm that transforms that area of your property with an awe-inspiring design. It employs the character of hand-selected and high-quality treated real wood of various kinds from sustainable lands. Highly trained “old world” craftsmen create strong structures of different styles and sizes with a floor, a waterproof roof of double main rafters, durable posts, reinforced beams, corner braces, headers, a decorative skirt, and other sturdy elements meant to last for many years of functional and trouble-free enjoyment. Modern building methods, technology, and computer-controlled milling are also incorporated to result in a customized finished product built to your individual specifications.
