Whenever we need a dose of architectural inspiration, we head over to Michael Cannell's House Vote, which is where we discovered this otherworldly outdoor dining pavilion by Herbst Architects.
Designed by South African-trained, New Zealand-based Lance and Nicky Herbst of Herbst Architects, the simple outdoor structure blends rustic elements (a timber frame clad in rough manuka sticks) with modern materials (translucent sheets of polycarbonate siding). To learn more, go to Herbst Architects; to pay a visit to Cannell's curated collection of projects, go to The House Vote.
