Carmody Groarke was selected by the Rothschild Foundation to design a new visitor pavilion for historic Waddesdon Manor, in Buckinghamshire. The Pavilion's purpose is to manage visitors arriving at Waddesdon; to welcome, orientate and direct them to the transport taking them to the Manor by shuttle buses.
The new building has been carefully planned within the internationally significant park of this Grade I Listed House. Defined by its 20m x 20m cantilevered canopy structure, the Pavilion is intended to be a landmark, orientation point and all-weather shelter within the landscape.
The project will begin construction later this year and will open in summer 2015.
