The Stamford Park Pavilion, East Manchester, has been unveiled by OMI Architects (

Designed by our very own Michael Cavagin, Senior Lecturer on BA (Hons) Interior Architecture and Design. The £1.3 million project demonstrates an exceptionally sensitive response to an existing Grade II Listed park and comprises new café, information point, public toilets, park manager’s office and community rooms  that are housed in a masonry clad cast concrete building topped with an accessible green roof. The main building is connected to an existing listed canopy and wall associated with the adjoining bowling green that dates from 1865. An excellent example of working with existing buildings – the main aim of BA (Hons) Interior Architecture and Design here at the Arts University Bournemouth.

Even more good news that the project has won a MSA Award (Manchester Society of Architects) and a regional RIBA Award.
