The pavilion is an architectural structure that became well-known in the 1800’s. Originally intended to be the host of entertainment and other activities, pavilions have served a multi-use purpose for centuries. Taking the gazebo concept and simplifying it a bit in overall shape and design, pavilions provide strong shade with corner-mounted columns, a hardtop roof, and typically have roofs that are similar to a house, but otherwise generally remain open to the elements.
Pavilions have a wide range of use, such as county parks, baseball parks, and next to swimming pools, and now showing up in backyards. Pavilions are meant to blend into the landscape more so than gazebos while providing a comfortable, shaded spot to gather with friends and family.
Gazebos also take advantage of corner-mounted columns and are shaped in the form of an octagon with a domed roof that is supported by 8 symmetrical pillared columns. Their structure is naturally inviting, and their typical octagonal shape encourages people to gather and talk with one another. Gazebos are incredibly flexible in terms of options like being completely screened in to provide excellent protection from pesky bugs like mosquitoes and flies.
