The University of Lincoln wanted to replace two existing dilapidated buildings and sensitively detach them from the grade I listed limestone temple folly and the grade II listed Greestone by William Watkins. A sustainable and cost-effective build was paramount to what the university required.
The old structures were demolished and a new, open-plan, multi-functional studio pavilions for the arts were erected in their place. A sustainable timber frame, with a adaptable space was key for the multiple uses of the pavilions.
A modern eco friendly design of the pavilions is located at the submit of the temple gardens in the greestone centre. The structures are framed by the cathedral walls and a clean rectangular design that will age beautifully in the historic setting of the gardens.
