Asbury Park, New Jersey
Pavilion Five, formerly the site of a Howard Johnson restaurant, is a partial two-story commercial building situated along the Boardwalk in Asbury Park, New Jersey. The space is sub-divided to house seven various restaurant and mercantile tenants. It is constructed of reinforced concrete, brick masonry, and concrete masonry units and contains many unique architectural features, such as its pie-crust shaped roof. At the semi-circular north end of the structure, a concrete pedestrian ramp wraps around the building and leads to the upper level. A deteriorated timber bandshell hovers over twenty feet above the mono-sloping roof of the southernmost part of the building. Concrete cantilevered beams extending outwards from the east and west elevations are remnants of the former pedestrian ramp that originally continued down the entire length of the building.
We were retained in the fall of 2007 to act as Architect of Record and to oversee the construction redevelopment of Pavilion Five. New tenant spaces were required for restaurant and mercantile occupancy as was a new overall design for the building. The building was structurally upgraded allowing for restaurant and mercantile occupancy. The installation of new sunshades along the perimeter of the building presented a particular challenge with asymmetry and an inconsistent existing structure. A missing section of ramp at the second level required structural attention.
