Point Pleasant Pavilion

A pavilion situated in Point Pleasant Park in Halifax. It is designed to house the Shakespeare by the Sea Theatre Company, as well as providing a multi-purpose sheltered space for park goers. Shakespeare by the Sea performs al-fresco in and among elements of the park, so no formal stage was required. Washrooms are located close to the park's main path allowing for quick access, and there are two concession stall just outside of the grand space.

The building resulted from a desire to reorient the site towards the Southeast, away from the industrial area it faced, while also capturing the rich light filtering through the trees to the South. The structure of large glulam beams, with stone columns and a thick stone retaining wall, place the building comfortably within the park's context of a large forest scattered with historic stone buildings.
