Discover the Family Pavilion at Waterloo Park

Michael Hsu Office of Architecture collaborated closely with MVVA to design the Waterloo Park Family Pavilion. Located adjacent to two expansive heritage trees shading a wooden deck, the project provides seating and facilities for the park’s trailer concession amenities while seamlessly blending into the landscape.

The Family Pavilion reflects the park’s architectural language with a concrete structure, designed to keep the landscape at the forefront of the experience. The seemingly simple, open-air building is heavily rooted, with a roof that is designed so that it appears to float over the space. A free-standing, concrete vessel sink mirrors the building’s form and is designed to withstand the elements. A large skylight at the back of the sloped roof bathes the concrete interior in natural lighting. A planter located below the skylight, once mature, will cover the back wall with greenery.
