Work has begun on a new community pavilion as part of the regeneration programme of Brook Green in Hammersmith.
The project was given the green light by council planners in August last year and will provide an important public washroom facility and new drinks and snacks kiosk for park users.
The work is being carried out by Notting Hill based De Rosee Sa Architects and funded by Friends of Brook Green.
The design proposals have been developed over three years of public consultation, with input from the community carefully considered at each stage and an extensive public design consultation held to approve the final scheme.
Max de Rosee, director of de Rosee Sa, said: “We have been working with Friends of Brook Green since 2012 on proposals for a community pavilion.
"We are excited that works are starting on site as the process has been complex with so many stakeholders involved. We have chosen chain-link fence site hoardings so the community can witness the Pavilion going up.”
The proposed natural stone-clad pavilion will be located between the tennis court entrance and the playground. The kiosk will also open out on to the square serving an outdoor area with removable café furniture enjoying views onto the tennis courts.
Joint chairman of the Friends Robert Jennings said he looked forward to celebrating the new pavilion at the Brook Green Day fair on September 17.
