Inverness Depot Pavilion & Train Station
A collaborative effort with the City of Inverness to facilitate the revitalization of their lakefront park systems, dramatically transforming the city, interconnecting renovated Liberty and Wallace Brooks parks and the new Depot District with the nearby downtown area via sidewalks and the Withlacoochee State Trail. Our primary architectural services included The Depot Pavilion and Train Station.
The Depot, an 11,700 square foot open air pavilion, offers a new center for park goers to enjoy festivals, farmers’ markets, and other yearly public events. Adjacent to The Depot is an iconic water tower, serving both as a beacon to the city and as a stage for performance events. The existing unoccupied 3,800 square foot train station on the site was relocated, renovated, and restored in order to provide a place for retail spaces, outdoor dining areas, and bike parking for park goers and cyclists alike. Restroom pavilions, designed in the same architectural aesthetic, are located at entry points of Liberty Park and the Depot District, serving as gateways to each park area.
