Great Ormond Street Hospital wanted to create a ‘conservatory-type building’ for eating and drinking that offered visitors a tranquil escape from the busy hospital wards. We transformed an unused and unloved roof area into a striking, sculptural pavilion. Finger-like sections of the zinc-clad roof wrap around the space, and the sections of glass between them create a dynamic play of light and shadow inside. The timber and glass materials create an experience that is far removed from the usual hospital canteen.
Our design for The Orangery won a RIBA Award in 2005. In the same year it was also shortlisted for the prestigious Stephen Lawrence Award and mid-listed for Britain’s top architectural accolade, the Stirling Prize.
