The master plan for Nexton, a new community west of Charleston, SC, provided for a large gathering space to host outdoor events. The Park would be named for a family with long ties to the immediate area. A centerpiece pavilion was conceived as an anchor point for what would become a clearing within an existing pine forest. Borrowing heavily from the character of the adjacent pines, the open Pavilion structure is a series of peeled logs, graduated in height and arrayed around a 40’ diameter stage platform.  Heavy timber brackets further the association with branches forming the pine tree canopy. Stain and material colors were selected to be complementary to the natural surrounds.
