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.
