Webb Chapel Park Pavilion by Cooper Joseph Studio

New York practice Cooper Joseph Studio was inspired by Mexican beach huts to insert four pyramidal chimneys behind the concrete exterior of this playground pavilion in Dallas, Texas
Sandwiched between a football pitch and a children’s playground, the pavilion offers a sheltered seating area for resting between games as well as picnicking benches for lunchtimes, so Cooper Joseph Studio wanted to keep the space as cool as possible.

“We were able to lighten the concrete with the use of local fly ash,” said Evans. “We used a rough board formwork to soften the aesthetic.”
