Praise for The Pavilion

Centerbrook announced today that The Pavilion at Grace in Providence, Rhode Island received a 2022 Merit Award from the New England Architecture Awards. The program recognizes outstanding and diverse architecture by New England architects.

The Pavilion, a 12,000-square-foot meeting space, opens to the neighborhood for socializing, special events, and celebrations. It connects to an asymmetrical Gothic Revival Episcopal church listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

“We’re delighted and humbled that The Pavilion was recognized by our colleagues,” said Centerbrook Principal Jim Childress, FAIA. “It joins its big brother as a downtown anchor, and we’re thrilled by how it’s been embraced by the Providence community.”

Clad in copper, The Pavilion’s color matches the brownstone church. With light and airy details, its design conveys openness to the outside world. Constructed by Bowerman Associates, the building was designed in collaboration with e2 Engineers, Wilkinson Associates, Jaffe Holden, Pare Corporation, and Atelier Ten.

Since its completion in 2017, The Pavilion’s design has been recognized by the Connecticut Chapter of the American Institute of Architects, the Construction Association, Faith & Form, the Copper Development Association, and the Providence Preservation Society.
