Dragonfly pavilion

The Dragonfly Pavilion comes from CDR Studio and was built in the garden of a townhouse in Hoboken, New Jersey.  Its irregular geometric design is inspired by the pattern of butterfly and dragonfly wings and the whole thing is built from sustainably harvested and FSC-certified Sapele mahogany within a recycled aluminium frame. Here's what they say about it:
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.
