Small Wooden Pavilion By Miguel Quismondo Architecture

The ice-covered forests of Garrison, New York supply viewers with a brief glimpse into life during the winter — trees devoid of their leaves, gravel, shrubbery, and rock emerging from their snow-capped surroundings in hope of summer’s warm touch — and yet, nothing but the cold can be found. Luckily, the denizens of Miguel Quismondo’s Small Wooden Pavilion have an escape all their own.

The Small Wooden Pavilion is defined by its dark, charred exterior — providing shelter for those who need a break from winter’s unforgiving elements. In its own unique way, the timber-clad dwelling protrudes from the snow-covered landscape in stark contrast, thanks to a sloped metal roof, polycarbonate facing, and a shadowy presence. To satisfy the needs of his clients, Quismondo split the structure into two separate sections, resulting in a dual-purpose building that can be utilized by alternative parties. The pavilion’s living areas sit atop the dwelling’s polished concrete foundation, keeping the home warm, cozy, and temperate during the long winter months.
