Invited competition to design a canal side restaurant and pub in Wiltshire.
We envisaged a building that would integrate harmoniously with- and make the most of its waterside location. The intention was to strike a careful balance between being a strong architectural statement, and a building that adds to – rather than dominates – the location. To this end we looked at historical canal side architecture as a starting point for producing a thoroughly modern and striking structure that would still be intrinsically of its place. We also intended to provide a series of inside and outside spaces that made the most of the sites position and provided a series of terraces fundamentally linking the built elements to the landscape.
