2011 / Edmonton Park Pavilions National Design Competition / Winning Proposal

Mill Woods Sport Park Pavilion

The Mill Woods Sport Park Pavilion is located in the Mill Woods Sport Park and serves adjacent playing fields.  The program includes team change rooms, officials change rooms, public washrooms, a concession area, and sports equipment storage. The facility provides an inclusive, inviting and flexible amenity that meets the expanding needs of the park and acts as a community focal point for the area.

The pavilion is designed as a simple horizontal object within the prairie landscape. A roof overhang and metal sunshade filters the amount of direct sunlight entering the public area through the south-facing windows. Large expanses of floor-to-ceiling windows in the public area encourage a safe environment through transparency. The light finishes of the interior contrasts the dark grey exterior, complementing the simple graphic silhouette of the building. Highly-durable finishes were selected such as exterior brick cladding, concrete block interior walls, and exposed concrete floors.
