De Rosee Sa completes £250k stone-clad pavilion

  • 1 Comment

De Rosee Sa has completed this community pavilion in Brook Green, Hammersmith

PROJECT DATA • PLAN • SECTIONS • DETAILS

The Kensington-based studio’s 42m2 scheme includes two accessible toilets, a store for the public tennis courts and a kiosk. 

Funded by the Friends of Brook Green, the pavilion is part of the community group’s drive to regenerate the green and offer a much-needed public facility and community hub and is part of an ongoing regeneration programme in the area. 

According to the architects the £250,000 pavilion has been ‘inspired by the use of natural stone on the facades of buildings facing the green.’ 

It is clad in Jura beige limestone and features windows hidden behind timber louvres alongside a zinc roof. 

Max de Rosee, director of De Rosee Sa Architects, said: ‘This building is the only one on the Green, and therefore the challenge has been to create something that is attractive at the heart of the community, but is also sensitive to its setting. We think that the result is a beautiful little building of great civic quality and harmony.’

  • Very few buildings on Brook Green use natural stone to this extent. The limestone cladding feels incredibly out of keeping, more suited to a Mediterranean seafront than red brick Brook Green.
