Wolfe Park Pavilion & Picnic Shelter – St. Louis Park, MN
The Wolfe Park Pavilion in St. Louis Park serves as a multi-purpose support facility for the park. The design was inspired by the existing veterans' memorial within the park. The concept conveys a sense of permanence and history while providing amenities for the park. Structural insulated panels and 2x6 wall construction contribute to an extremely well-insulated and air tight building. Recycled content materials were used and low VOC finishes were selected for their impact on indoor air quality. Large expanses of glass and a clerestory provide for a strong connection to the outdoors. Two picnic shelters and a play area are also part of the project.
