OMI unwraps Stamford Park pavilion

  • Comment

[FIRST LOOK] Manchester-based OMI Architects has taken the wraps off this £1.3 million pavilion in Stamford Park, east of Manchester

Shortlisted for a RIBA Regional Award last month, the new 450m² building forms part of OMI and landscape architect LDA Design’s Heritage Lottery funded scheme to restore the Grade II-listed park between the towns of Ashton-under-Lyne and Stalybridge.

A new café, information point, public toilets, park manager’s office and community rooms are housed in a masonry clad cast concrete building topped with an accesable green roof.

The main building is connected to an existing listed canopy and wall associated with the adjoining bowling green that dates from 1865.
