Pavilion VI is one of ten unique residential/educational structures lining the west and east sides of the Lawn at the University of Virginia. This building was designed by Thomas Jefferson as part of his Academical Village. It is distinguishable by the lack of a portico on its facade. It is instead fronted by one-story columnns of the colonnade. Double doors on its upper and lower levels flank double-hung windows. The centerpiece of Pavilion IV's garden is a stone spire sculpture that was presented by presented by Merton College, Oxford. The first resident of Pavilion VI was Thomas Hewitt Key.
