This is our first project in the Atlantic Beach NC. Our vision of what the future Atlantic Beach Boardwalk could have become has won the design award. Many thanks to everyone in our firm that works hard on this project.
The proposal envisions a seaside boardwalk with multi-layer leisure space, with new amenities that reflect the city’s emerging populations and tackling these evolving needs.
The new mass timber multi-use pavilion will serve as a stage for outdoor concerts as well as provide shelter and shade for beach goers and other events. When not in use as a stage; it can serve as shaded place for families to gather for a picnic by the beach and for friends to meet up for food and beverages. It will also serve as the event center for beach volleyball tournaments, road races and other events. Other amenities include concession stands and seating on ground floor and the mezzanine floors.
The new boardwalk integrates with existing homes fronting it, with the landscaping features sand fixing plants and palm trees. its undulating form creates pockets for a diverse of functions, such as splash pad, shaded seating area, and picnic area. As well as a gazebo with small amphitheater for children next to the new playground. It also provides ADA access that extend 125 feet from the edge of current boardwalk to the ocean.
A new bathhouse structure accommodates five toilet stalls for women and two stalls plus three urinals for men. Eight open air showers are integrated on the perimeter of the structure, plus a family restroom with diaper station, an ADA restroom as well as a janitor’s closet, and two niches with drinking fountains.
The point area is designed with features including ferries wheel, carousel, and a large flagpole. We have proposed a public art in sculptural form at the point area. The name of the sculpture is phoenix rising, relating to the history of the pavilion.
The spaces between places, sidewalks and crosswalks and alleys pavements are also upgraded with landscape and
