Stanton Williams scoops planning for King's Cross pavilion

  • Comment

Stirling Prize winning-Stanton Williams has finally won planning permission for this canal-side pavilion at King’s Cross

First mooted back in 2008 (AJ 11.04.08), the 855m2 pavilion next to the Townshend Landscape Architects’ Granary Square will house a restaurant and bar.

The AJ100 Fastest Growing Practice winner designed the brick pavilion to compliment the industrial heritage of the area.

The structure will ‘help to enclose Granary Square’, connecting the public realm at first floor level with the canal towpath below.

The project is set to complete in 2015.

The architect’s view

‘The scheme will create large open spaces not only within the Pavilion, consisting of a dining room, bar and open kitchen, but also outside, with a generously proportioned outdoor dining area on the canal side.

‘Full-height windows will ensure that the interior is bathed in natural light, whilst the materials will continue on the industrial theme of the exterior, with exposed brick, glass and steel, making the space feel both pared-back and elegant, whilst also welcoming and atmospheric at any time of the day or night.’
