Project Description
Permission was granted for the demolition of the existing longstanding Pavilion Restaurant within the beautiful grounds of the Royal Botanic Gardens at Kew. The new steel framed restaurant boasts a 400-cover capacity - divided into 117 internal places, 204 external places and a further 80 externally sheltered places. Striking in its design, the Pavilion Restaurant's appearance is capped by a floating roof over a glass façade on all elevations. The catering kitchen and the functional areas are visually "encased" within an aged brass clad feature wall. This enhances the economic vitality and long-term conservation of the Gardens whilst protecting its status as an UNESCO World Heritage Site, Registered Park, Garden and Conservation Area.

The project is a pre designed scheme incorporating all mechanical, electrical and plumbing (MEP) services, which has been enhanced into a fully co-ordinated scheme along with the Architect, Client and Main Contractor.
