Priory Park Pavilion had to be capable of sympathetic integration within its Grade II listed, 18th-century parkland setting, as well as being sensitive to its location within the grounds of the Grade I listed Reigate Priory.
The design solution reduces vertical structure by using a portalised steel frame. Dramatic floor-to-ceiling windows and mirror-polished steel uprights reduce the building’s visible impact.
It also enables those using the new facilities; which include an interpretation centre, a café run by a local business, an office and public toilets; to enjoy spectacular views across the park landscape.
