Butterfly Pavilion modern-porch

Butterfly Pavilion

Unlike traditional porches, this porch pulls away from the structure allowing for an outdoor deck/ cookout area without depriving the adjacent kitchen of much appreciated sunlight. Carefully positioned slats and planks frame views into the landscape and provide privacy from neighboring properties. A butterfly roof canopy floats above the crafted box redirecting water into a future rain garden.

Nontoxic ACQ pressure treated lumber and sustainably-harvested cedar were selected for this project to ensure the health and safety of the owners. Tube footings were carefully located to reduce sited disturbance and avoid tree roots. The rain garden will help reduce stormwater run-off while providing a lush garden to complement the architecture. By Rick Schneider with inscape.
