Lunchtime Design: Hermitage Park Pavilion Ideas

After winning the bid to redevelop Helensburgh’s historic Hermitage Park for Argyle & Bute Council along with landscape architects, Gillespies, we held another of our regular office-wide design charrettes. Once again a there was a wide range of ideas put forward, from an imposing brick arched structure in the middle of the Park, an extended wall linking the pavilion to the Park entrance, to a timber clad glass box with an intimate walled garden around one of the burns which run through the Park.  The client was delighted with the range and quality of ideas that came forward in the charette and the resultant discussion has led to a reconsideration of the brief and the building’s location.
