Carmody Groarke wins planning for Waddesdon Manor Pavilion
Carmody Groarke has been given the go-ahead for a new visitor pavilion at the grade I-listed Waddesdon Manor
The scheme for the Rothschild Foundation will manage visitors to the historic house in Buckinghamshire, directing them to the site’s shuttle bus service.
It features a 20m x 20m cantilevered canopy and is intended to act as a landmark and all-weather shelter.
Waddesdon Manor was built in 1877 by Baron Ferdinand de Rothschild to display his collection of art. The house is now managed by the charitable trust, The Rothschild Foundation.
The pavilion will start on site later this year and is set to open in summer 2015.
