46 PROJECT REPORT: HOTELS, RESTAURANTS & BARS


concept developed by landscape architect Layer reflects the local history, there having been a garden nearby. Working with Sheppard Robson, they developed ideas of “field edges, meadows, woodlands – an existing group of trees further down in the public realm would be retained.” The two kiosks in the square tie in with “ideas of timber shacks in woods and fields,” and the landscaping scheme “tapers down from the woodland into the ‘field edge’ and more rough cut areas, into a ‘meadow.’” Finally there are more lawned areas with hard landscaping, adjacent to the new building.


Conclusion


This modest scheme, by Sheppard Robson’s standards, demonstrates what the architects can do to create a carefully textural timber building, and one which stretched their proven abilities into new areas. Having shifted somewhat from its original concept, its low pavilion form still adds a sense of welcome relief to a commercial district which exhibits the familiar glass and steel materiality of many of its counterparts. Costing only £5m, the building represented a different challenge for Sheppard Robson, given the amount of design time and effort it would require. However it’s a “career highlight” for Neal Allen-Burt, who adds: “It’s not often we get a chance to do something like this.” The results of a somewhat experimental approach to using timber are bearing fruit: “Some of the ideas on it we have developed on the project are starting to inform ideas of how we may use timber on other buildings in the future.” 
