GARDEN-PAVILION_01

Part gable, part hip roof: the dutch gable.  This small pavilion is a simple post-and-beam structure, on a four-square plan, with shingled walls set in antis to the columns on two sides, all beneath a large square dutch gable roof.  The roof is inherently directional, always favoring one axis of the other, even though the eaves remain constant.  The bottom drawings attempt to subvert this, making the dutch gable diagonally symmetrical, similar to the roof of a small cabin I featured some weeks past.
