Russia Peterhof Lower Park Volière Pavilion

Volière Pavilion

Light wooden building in the Lower Park of Peterhof designed by Nicola Michetti (1721–22). Faced with tuff and scallops. Consists of an octahedral hall, crowned with a cupola and lantern, and two rectangular branches. Large semi-circular windows with light glazing transform the building into an aviary. Original ornamental and decorative paintwork by Louis Caravaque survives inside.
