About the Project

Viewed from the main house of this nearly three-acre Greenwich property, the distant garden pavilion is an outpost of serenity at the plateau of a gently terraced hill. A heretofore unutilized portion of the lower property was given form with this hexagonal structure as its centerpiece.

Sited to avail itself of spectacular Horseneck River views, the pavilion continues the classical elements dialogue of the main house including Tuscan columns, full entablature, and stylobate.

Process Insights

The twelve-foot high ceiling of the pavilion is trayed and finished with painted mahogany beaded planking. The planking is installed in concentric hexagonal segments, reinforcing the pavilion’s pleasing geometry.
