Shangri La Jali Pavilion
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.
