The new pavilion provides a destination at the seaward end of a re-furbished Victorian pier.
Lying alongside the existing structure the pavilion combines the benefits of a solarium with a cafe and exhibition space and a canopy to accommodate a three car tram stop.
The design uses a combination of exposed steelwork, large glass panels and marine ply to symbolise marine construction methods and naval architecture. Structure & services are carefully executed to exhibit the building’s systems.
1km out to sea the enclosure provides shelter and warmth using a sophisticated “air floor”. The 45m glass wall faces south west with views of the Mersey Estuary & welsh hills in the distance.
