Carmody Groarke wins part in Farrell masterplan

Up-and-coming practice bags scheme in north London masterplan

Carmody Groarke has won an Architecture Foundation competition to design a new ‘pavilion’ in the heart of the Terry Farrell-masterplanned Osnaburgh Street development in Camden, north London.

Organised on behalf of the scheme’s developer, British Land, the competition brief called for a ‘new pavilion to beautify and intensify’ the entrance to the new east-west connection to Osnaburgh Street.

London-based Carmody Groarke’s pavilion will feature ‘an ornamental field of stainless-steel rods supporting a canopy 8m above the streetscape’. Clusters of the rods can be removed from the pavilion to create ‘shimmering’ pathways, spaces and seating areas.

The building – which Carmody Groarke described as a ‘folly’ – will become part of Farrell’s masterplan, alongside schemes from Munkenbeck + Marshall and Wilkinson Eyre.

Five other practices – Ian McChesney, Niall McLaughlin, Newbetter, Proctor Rihl and Surface – were invited to take part in the contest.
