Pavilion Restaurant, Kew
ClientRoyal Botanical Gardens, Kew
Set in the UNESCO World Heritage Royal Botanic Gardens at Kew, the Pavilion Restaurant is a new single level structure nestled between mature vines and trees.
The building has a strong design narrative that is derived from its unique heritage setting. It has been designed to maximise views across the garden, particularly to the Pagoda and Temperate House and to sit sensitively between the protected ancient vines.
The black steel finish, rational grid and glass façade references the minimalist design approach to Japanese and Chinese garden designs instilling a sense of calm and reflection.
