Bywaters Par - Peristyle

After decades of recurring structural problems, the historic and beloved Peristyle in Bywaters Park, designed by renowned Paris architect J. L. Wees, in 1932,  was completely dismantled and restored to its original beauty.  The structural foundation was completely demolished and replaced with a new foundation on drilled concrete piers and a suspended structural floor slab.  The Leuders limestone elements were carefully dismantled, cleaned & restored to their original condition.  Broken or damaged stones were replaced with new stones taken from the original quarry and carved to faithfully match the original.  Utmost care was taken in all aspects of the project in order to restore and preserve this architectural treasure, which is used heavily by the community for concerts, weddings, and other special events.
