Backyard Pavilion

Contemporary Patio, St Louis

This 22’x20’ pavilion is, essentially, a screen porch turned into an elegant structure sited deep into a verdant backyard. Pavilions are classically an open-air structure, but in this case screens in the expansive openings and door bring in the breeze while keeping pests at bay. It is also the perfect place to spend a rainy spring day! The pavilion is composed of a 4” thick concrete slab with a flooring of natural stone veneer. Four tumbled stone piers with limestone bases are in each corner, connected by carpentry framing and topped with a vaulted truss ceiling and 40-year roofing shingles. A gutter and downspout system assures the building – and occupants – stay dry. Inside, there is full electric and a plumbing hookup, which makes this a flexible space. The family takes full advantage of it as a quiet retreat, their home away from home. But many times throughout the year, it easily transforms into a party room, with guests inside and spread out upon the lawn and at various seating areas along the winding path that leads from the home to the pavilion.
