Blog - IN THE KNOW: SEASIDE, FL PAVILIONS
Do you know the name of all of the Seaside, Florida Pavilions?
When you are driving down 30A through Seaside, Florida, you can’t help but notice the uniqueness of the Seaside, FL pavilions. They are extremely significant to both the community of Seaside, FL as well as South Walton. At the end of each street in Seaside, Florida, there is a pavilion that is owned by that street’s homeowners association. The nine pavilions are unique in appearance but all serve the same purpose. They were designed to be a gathering spot for families and friends.
The pavilions serve dual purpose – gateways to the beach as well help protect the dune system. The open gateways provide a gathering spot for guests and owners to take in the view as well as chat with others. The main goal of the pavilions was for the pavilions to become distinctive landmarks to represent Seaside, Florida.
Each pavilion features its own unique design and reflects the individual vision of the architect. From Roger Ferri’s play on “stick” architect with the Odessa Pavilion to Tony Atkin’s rotunda-styled Pensacola Pavilion topped with a pelican weathervane. Each pavilion is different but they all help make Seaside, Florida, extremely unique.
