A coffee shop kiosk, with two public toilets, an office, and storage

Part of an ongoing programme to regenerate Brook Green, the pavilion provides an important public facility (two accessible WC’s and a store for the public tennis courts) but also introduces something new: a kiosk on the Green.

The design proposals have been developed over two years of public consultation and events. The responses from the community have been carefully considered and have informed the final scheme
he material for the pavilion is inspired by the use of natural stone on the facades of buildings facing the Green. The pavilion is clad in a Jura Beige limestone and complimented by a standing seam zinc roof. The windows are concealed behind timber louvres and timber cladding is proposed to the recessed openings that form the doors and kiosk counter. Metal reveals to match the colour of the zinc roof are proposed to the recessed openings.

The design and materials promote a greater role for this pavilion in the community than its timber predecessor, aspiring for a civic quality that is reminiscent of the early Victorian days.
