    The Dragonfly Pavilion

    The Dragonfly Pavilion
    Gear  /  Gadget
    The Dragonfly Pavilion is a one room structure designed to protect you from nature and wildlife while still being sensitive to it. Designed by CDR and manufactured by SITU Fabrication.
    "The Dragonfly Pavilion is situated in a long rectangular garden behind a four-story townhouse in Hoboken, New Jersey. Pavilion is Latin for Papillion or “butterfly.” Drawing from the complex structural pattern of butterfly and dragonfly wings, our team came to understand that the pattern was not merely ornamental, but highly efficient: its intricacies are created by its form. The skeletal structure of the Pavilion is a gradient of complex geometric shapes. The entirety of the Pavilion is an assembly of irregular cells shaped by local stresses, constructed of sustainably harvested and FSC-certified Sapele mahogany and stitched into a vertical recycled aluminum vertical armature. These cells are more than just aesthetically appealing; their shape and size respond directly to the forces acting on it.
    The Pavilion is a simple rectangular form creating an inhabitable threshold from a deck on one side of the townhouse through to a more privatized garden space on the other side. The project is the result of a commission for an outside porch that provided shade and protection from wildlife. The client has a sensitivity to insects, so special screening was necessary to fill the mahogany cells; also giving the visual depth of an inner skin. The structure supports a glass canopy which is made from a patterned, laminated-tempered glass, allowing light to come through, while still providing privacy due to its water-like pattern. The resulting space provides a sheltered outdoor experience, with space for yoga, dining, reading, and outdoor sleeping."
