Central London project is practice’s first for public realm
Platform 5 Architects has won planning consent for a temporary cafe at St Martin-in-the-Fields in central London.
The kiosk, a simple portico structure with recessed sides, will sit on the east courtyard of the church between Trafalgar Square and the Strand.
Externally it will be clad in shot-peened stainless steel while a contrasting bright brass mesh cladding will be used inside.
Peter Allen, partner at Platform 5 Architects, said: “St Martin’s are great clients who understand the benefits contemporary design can bring to a historic setting and for Platform 5, it’s hard to think of a more exciting place to be building our first public realm project.
“We’re really looking forward to the construction phase and enjoying the cafe next year.”
The kiosk is due to complete in April 2013.
