The Blurb

Located within the confines of an impressive Grade II listed 197-bed Service Apartments in the surrounds of Princes Square at Bayswater, this new build restaurant pavilion is designed to cope with the increasing capacity of the building. Conceived as a cut stone, the asymmetrical shape is orientated to respond to the varying sightlines in its various approaches. The mezzanine dining space is pulled back to reveal a double-volume entrance slot. The structure is conceived as a series of diagonal trusses of steel circular tubes behind the fully glazed curtain wall and roof.
