Shangri La Jali Pavilion
(Honolulu, HI)

Spectra Company is currently restoring the Shangri La Jali Pavilion in Hawaii. This historic residence was built for Doris Duke in the early 1930’s as a tropical retreat. The grounds exude Islamic influences and many of the artifacts were shipped from abroad and installed onsite. The Jali (lattice screen) Pavilion is constructed of marble pieces from a bedroom and bathroom suite that Doris commissioned in India in 1935. The pavilion was used as a recreational area for sun bathing, backgammon, and sewing.
