Chanticleer Public Garden

CICADA was the third and final architectural firm retained by Chanticleer to design an Asian pavilion to house public restrooms to serve the patrons of this renowned public garden. The design process was an interactive one, with the Executive Director and the Director of Facilities closely involved. Challenging design constraints included constraints on total impervious area and site disturbance, and on the height of the building above the low point of grade on the steeply sloping site. Sustainable design criteria included fenestration design to eliminate the need for artificial lighting during daylight hours, infiltration of all rainwater from the roof and other impervious surfaces, and superinsulation of the walls and roof and design of an in-floor heating system to allow energy-efficient off-season use of the pavilion to overwinter tender perennials.
