    Description of property/project:

    The Pears Pavilion in Bloomsbury, London is a new home for Coram's Centre for Creative Therapies – art and music. It is conceived as a freestanding pavilion within a reflective garden, different in character to the other rectilinear and monotone buildings on the campus. The difference in form and character expresses its use as a creative centre and also its relationship to the garden setting.

    The sculptural form of the building was generated by the geometry of the site and clearance of tree protection zones. Pitched roofs help to shed leaves and create recognizable gable forms to give a more intimate domestic scale to the building. Eaves lines rise and fall according to scale of spaces within.
