A new canalside Pavilion at King’s Cross, designed by Stanton Williams, has been approved by Camden Council. The three storey building is located to the east of Granary Square, adjacent to Regent’s Canal. When complete in 2015, the 9,200 sq ft space will become a brand new restaurant and bar.
King’s Cross Pavilion will operate as as a modern addition to its location, but one that also complements the industrial heritage of the area. The linear brick façade of the new structure is in keeping with the nearby Granary Building and other examples of Victorian era architecture.
The Pavilion’s position means that it will help to enclose Granary Square, while creating even more activity in the space. At the same time, the Pavilion will create new pedestrian connections; at first floor level the building will connect with Granary Square, while at ground floor level it will connect with the canal towpath.
