Dominique Perrault Architecture were selected as winners of the competition.
The new pavilion, whilst providing modern facilities and a café, had to be capable of sympathetic integration within the Grade II listed 18th Century park. It also needed to respect the fine Grade I Priory Building, a scheduled ancient monument, and for which the park formed the original parkland.
Dominique Perrault’s circular café pavilion with glass doors, floor to ceiling windows and mirror-polished stainless steel uprights, provided the ideal solution. Inside, the pavilion is a café, public toilets, an office, and an interpretation centre aimed at telling the story of the renovated Priory Park.
