In 2015, we joined forces with Architecture 00. Together, we enjoy collaborating in a shared environment where strategic, urban and social designers, architects, programmers and economists practice design beyond its traditional borders. 00 work with individuals, governments, corporations and communities to solve problems and anticipate change, and to design successful platforms and places. As a studio it aims to reach beyond the design of objects themselves to the social, economic and environmental systems behind them.
Echoing visions of a bygone industrial era of the Thames quays in Nine Elms, the Thames Walk Pavilion provides a new raised garden at Bourne Valley Wharf.
Fabricated with flame burnished copper water tank panels, the structure provides a shelter for the public and storage for public furniture items. Cradling an assemblage of rich foliage, the pavilion acts as a literal honey trap for creatures great and small amidst the ongoing development of the surrounding context. Hawthorn trees will encourage bird life and a rainbow of grasses and perennials will create a home for wildlife as well as bringing a splash of seasonal colour to the public thoroughfare.
