The Brompton Café plays a pivotal role in activating the Brompton Pavilion. Located on the East side of the Pavilion, and yet with views to all sides, the café deftly negotiates the scaled interplay between the larger landscape to the East and North, central courtyard to the West, and the interstitial courtyard to the South.
In this way, it operates beyond its remit as a café, emanating beyond its walls to provide a social catalyst for surrounding community activities and events, and strengthening its role as a transformative space for the local community.
The nuanced plywood baffled ceiling, provides for intimate zones within the café, highlighting the interrelationship between the greater landscape context and the tactile space of the individual.
