At Stamford Park, OMI Architects have done a rare thing - they have managed to design a building that takes the back seat, by allowing the existing Bowling Pavilion to remain center stage, by allowing the landscape to dominate and by semi-burying their new visitors centre into the natural topography, their modestly composed new building gains its stature by doing everything right; quietly rather than imposing its will on its majestic location.

One in a series of interventions in the same park by the architects, Highfield Pavilion has become the heartbeat for all ages of park users in the area.
