The Pavilion Tea House | Hove Park, East Sussex
Rebuild of cafe in Hove Park.
This japanese-inspired rebuild of the Pavilion Tea House in Hove Park will provide a much larger indoor and outdoor seating area for the cafe, as well as a larger well-equipped kitchen and pizza oven.
The building is mainly constructed of timber and glass with a roof light providing natural light into the cafe. Its living green roof will disguise the cafe from the road view and embed it in its park setting.
Long fixed benches and tables surround the interior and – as the cafe will be serving food and drinks into the evening – removal of some existing trees will allow late afternoon light onto the outdoor seating area.
Added facilities include disabled access, bathrooms and cycle parking plus vastly increased capacity and an attractive but sensitive green design.
“Koru Architects have been a breath of fresh air in helping me develop my concept and taking this through to design. Mark has been great to deal with, always happy to listen and take on board my views, in a timely fashion. He has shown the patience of a saint, whilst always finding new ideas to cope with my changing views.” – Gino Fox, client.
