In Gehennum’s climate shelter from the sun and rain are often wanted, but solid structures to provide shelter from the wind and cold are not. Light, open structures are therefore common. On country estates, beside beaches, and in large gardens there are often pavilions scattered about, for the shelter and comfort of the people who take pleasure there. In the Archaic Period and the Classical Period pavilions are usually made of bamboo, timber, and thatch. In the Decadent Period stone pavilions are common enough.

Pavilions intended for people to sleep in have (in the sleeping-apartments at least) stout lattice grilles to keep out leopards and monkeys. See architecture and windows.
