NAC and Garco Construction collaborated with Spokane Parks and Recreation to reimagine and redesign an iconic element of the Spokane skyline for over 40 years: the Pavilion at Riverfront Park.
Designed to be a multifunctional space and an extension of the park, the structure serves as a venue for events and passive recreational area for park guests. To support this dual purpose and enhance the iconic image of the Pavilion, the project’s final design solution involved reconnecting the Spokane River with the structure; creating opportunities to achieve elevation within the structure not only for the views, but for the experience of reaching elevation; adding shade elements to make the outdoor venue more comfortable; and the use of light for dramatic effect and to emphasize the structure’s elegant framework.
The Pavilion now serves as a gathering place for the people of Spokane. The redesigned outdoor venue allows the community to connect to one another and to the river that has been a vital source in the region for generations. Check out the video below!
