East completes Avery Hill café

  • 2 Comments

[FIRST LOOK + PLANS] East has completed this new café in Avery Hill Park, south east London

Replacing a previous café building which was destroyed in a fire, the practice worked with stakeholders including Friends of Avery Hill and Greenwich Council on the £240,000 scheme.

The 77m² café is square in plan with full height windows on all sides. A pitched roof extends out over both the south and west elevations, creating sheltered external space for the local residents who visit the park to walk their dogs.

The building includes two ‘accessible’ public WCs and an external tap for public use - mainly for dog water.

According to a practice spokesman: ‘The brief required that the new building be an economical and green structure able to withstand vandalism and fire. Components of the main café construction include natural lambs wool insulation, lime render and high performance thermal blockwork, and services include a ground source heat pump, rainwater harvesting tank and grey water system.’

  • Is this a joke?

    The photograph of the dog bowl is awful! It is a shame, as I have fond memories of the old 'swiss cottage' style cafe.
