ACME's amphitheatre-style wooden pavilion to become new social hub

IQL's pavilion will play a key role in bringing together local residents, employees and the wider community, forming a new social hub for Stratford.
– Andrew Tobin

ACME's amphitheatre-style pavilion that is intended to become a new social hub and meeting place has topped out in Stratford, East London.

The Pavilion – both its descriptor and working title – is being built for the developing International Quarter London (IQL), a new business district on the edge of the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, which hosted much of the 2012 Summer Olympics and Paralympics.

Covering an area of 10,000sq ft (930sq m), it is designed to be an extension of the area's existing public realm and to give passersby a place to pause and pass time.

The Pavilion will have a series of terraces for visitors to explore and steps on which for people to stop and sit.

It will accommodate two new restaurants, a café and various outdoor spaces, including a roof terrace with views of the Olympic Park and the London skyline.

It is also intended to act as a 'third space' for IQL, providing a location for people to work away from the office or during visits.

The structure will be built almost entirely of sustainably sourced timber, using modern methods of construction to reduce waste.

Andrew Tobin, project director for IQL, said: “IQL’s pavilion will play a key role in bringing together local residents, employees and the wider community, forming a new social hub for Stratford. A unique and spectacular structure, we believe the design of the pavilion will see it fast becoming one of London’s iconic landmarks.”

The pavilion broke ground in February this year and is due to be complete mid-to-late next year.
