- Project Cost
Elephant Park is at the heart of a £2.3 billion regeneration led by Lendlease, which will create 3000 new homes and establish one of London’s best new open spaces. This new pavilion for Lendlease will be the centrepiece of the new park, accommodating WCs, food and beverage kiosks, a new community space and a viewing terrace.
The triangular pavilion is formed by three volumes bound together by an oversailing roof terrace. The deck of the terrace will be centred around an existing mature London plane tree and will therefore be afforded the benefits of shade, elevated views across the park, and the opportunity to circulate beneath the tree’s canopy. The pavilion is designed to create a seamless flow between park and pavilion, blurring boundaries between inside and outside, enclosure and exposure.
Sustainability and consideration of embodied energy has been a key consideration of the design. The structure has been designed in cross-laminated timber (CLT) with sustainably-sourced timber cladding and timber decking resulting in a building that is carbon negative in terms of its embodied energy.
Construction will commence in the Autumn with the pavilion due to be completed in early 2021.
