DTW Architects designed a pavilion in Central Durham Park, which has served as a catalyst for various improvements in the vicinity. The George Watts Hill Pavilion was designed by DTW Architects as a gift in honor of George Watts Hill, and it was built with a grant from Central Carolina Bank. This pavilion currently houses a not-for-profit sculpture studio and bronze casting facility, which was used to cast the bull on display in downtown Durham.

This was the last project completed by renowned modernist architect Frank DePasquale, one of DTW's founding principal architects. Learn more about Frank @ NCModernist here

DTW Architects designed a new picnic shelter as part of the overall site improvements in the Eno River State Park expansion. The open-air shelter uses heavy timber frame construction and a stone fireplace to relate the structure to its surroundings. In addition, DTW also designed five ranger residences at five North Carolina State Parks: Lake Norman, Lake Waccamaw, Falls Lake, Pilot Mountain and Cliffs of the Neuse.
