Construction of the Pavilion dance club at the Fire Island Pines will begin next month.

The Pavilion was one of the structures devastated in a fire last November on the nearly exclusively gay male community located on the barrier island south of Long Island.

Plans for the reimagined Pavilion were designed by New York architects HWKN and developed by FIP Ventures. In a deal worth $17 million, FIP Ventures in 2010 purchased nearly three-quarters of the commercial properties on Fire Island Pines.

“Although the new building will have the same envelope and mix of uses as its predecessor, the similarities end there,” Matthew Blesso, managing partner of FIP Ventures, said in a statement. “The Pavilion will be in context with other Pines architecture. It will be made of wood and be modern and casual, yet bold and iconic. It is the first thing visitors see when getting off the ferry, and we've envisioned it to be the heart of the Pines community.”

“We designed the new Pavilion around the community and experiences at Fire Island,” said Matthias Hollwich, co-founder of HWKN. “The building forms intimate public spaces out of a single volume. It is carved and rutted pieces of driftwood washed ashore by the sea.”

The new Pavilion will have two stories of outdoor terrace and a “Welcome Bar,” which will serve as a meeting place for residents and visitors.

Other structures devastated by the fire, including the Canteen building, Pool Deck, bulkhead and boardwalk, have been fully repaired, FIP Ventures said.
