An interest in modular construction, the efficient use of materials and expression of engineering as an integral part of the architecture has always underscored our work.
The pavilion concept investigates the requirement to construct a variety of elegant pavilions at National Trust properties throughout the country to improve visitor facilities, such as new Cafes, Visitor Reception buildings and Shops in very sensitive locations. It takes the form of a demountable sustainable building system using timber sourced locally from National Trust properties where possible. The principle of this idea has been utilised by the National Trust.
We were asked by the National Trust to investigate the possibility of developing our Pavilion Concept for use at Knole to provide temporary café facilities as the existing tea room is unable to cope with demand. The building is capable of removal and relocation to a different property in the future if required. Planning Permission and Listed Building Consent has been received.
