Roz Barr creates circular pavilion outside church for London Design Festival

  • Comment

Roz Barr Architects has created a temporary pavilion at its refurbished St Augustine’s Church for the London Design Festival

The practice created the structure as a celebration of 100 years of the place of worship on Fulham Palace Road to the west of the capital.

Galvanised steel is used to shroud the external walls in reference to the ‘Tin Cathedral’ that originally housed the congregation while the church was being built.

Meanwhile the timber frame of the pavilion alludes to the large roof trusses in the church interior, which have been stripped back and lightened through the practice’s recent refurbishment.

Negative moulds used in the making of a tabernacle and ring above the altar are repurposed as decorative elements within the installation.

The pavilion will be open to the public for one month.

Roz Barr Architects’ refurbishment of St Augustine’s Church was featured in the AJ earlier this year.
