Falls Park Building: Reedy River Falls Park

Greenville, South Carolina


Part of a larger project for the renovation of Falls Park on the Reedy River, this compact building serves as an overlook for the scenic waterfalls, a café, rooftop restaurant, and maintenance/storage area for the City Parks Department.  The distinctive elevator tower and stepped terraces functionally provide access from Main Street to two lower levels of the park and symbolically allude to the palette and massing of the historic textile mill buildings of the area.  The fabric and steel canopy is a fitting complement to the dramatic new suspension footbridge across the Reedy River gorge.

Designed in collaboration with Arentz Landscape Architects
