Grand Traverse Resort
Acme, MI
Pedestrian Pavillion

The pedestrian pavilion is part of a larger resort project to re-organize their main parking lot.  Cornwell Architects was hired by the civil engineering firm to design a shelter to be used by resort guests waiting for a shuttle service to the resort and other amenities.  The design draws on the adjacent golf clubhouse materials and the typical rustic up-north character to create a unique, bold shelter.  The pavilion is located on a walking path between the main resort tower and the golfing facility on the edge of the parking lot.  The four stone columns are tapered to add a sense of stability and strength to the free standing shelter.  The roof structure is a combination of standard lumber rafters on top of pre-engineered exposed timber trusses.
