Engineering art at Greenwich Peninsula

October 2018
We love art installations — particularly full-size public art that we help make happen, like Studio Weave’s timber frame version of a Victorian terrace house now open on the Greenwich Peninsula.

The project, variously described as a folly, a pavilion and an interactive installation, is entitled 33. It takes the form of a three-storey ‘house’ frame with fretwork infill and bright yellow steel stair treads, and is accessible by the public — it makes a great lookout tower for watching construction of our other project in the area: Greenwich Design District.

The pavilion re-uses an existing concrete and granite plinth on piled foundations, originally constructed to support a fountain. Working for Knight Dragon, we made structural and loading checks to ensure it would take the weight of the new concrete slab required for Studio Weave’s scheme, and developed details for the new concrete works. We also provided advice on drainage, and reviewed the calculations and design drawings for the bolted timber frame.

The graphics on and around the structure are by Studio Weave collaborators, design practice HATO. The contractor was Timberwright of Hertfordshire.

The pavilion is by the entry to Central Park and is intended for the hosting of community events, performances and workshops. It is open to the public 11am-5pm Friday to Sunday this autumn — and the view is terrific!
