Acheson Doyle Partners designed this retail pavilion at Liberty Island, the first new construction on the island since it was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1966. Featuring new outdoor seating and interior spaces, the Pavilion provides a strong reference point for debarking visitors while still deferring to the Statue of Liberty as the main attraction. The pavilion promotes use of the dining area and enhances the visitor experience by providing a comfortable, dedicated space where visitors can shop and use restroom facilities. This facility achieved LEED Platinum certification with sustainable features such as a high-performance building envelope, low-E insulating windows and glass, and a reflective roof surface for cooling. A geothermal well is used for ground source heating and cooling and additional energy savings comes from the use of LED lighting, rainwater harvesting, occupancy sensors and low-flow faucets and toilets.
