The Greenwich Gateway Pavilions play an important role in an area undergoing huge transformation. They define the southern edge of the Peninsula Square, and form a gateway to Central Park and the major residential developments beyond.
The curved and facetted glass skin to the twin pavilions – the larger containing offices, show suites and an art gallery, the smaller a café – varies in reflectivity according to orientation. A floating canopy above them forms a shelter and portal, visually connecting them by an arrangement of curved tubes beneath the canopy arranged in a magnetic field pattern. Rooftop terraces give visitors 360 degree views across London.
