Arthur’s Restaurant Shepperton
The brief was for an eco restaurant with a green living roof, and clear views around the Green.
"Sam of A:WK spent time familiarising herself with the surrounding area and the site of our proposed project, before talking with us at length, and listening attentively to get a feel for our hopes and requirements. She was positive and enthusiastic, while pointing out some practical constraints and possibilities that non-professionals would not be aware of. I love my new home and am delighted to have gone through the building process with A:WK by my side. "
Arthur's on the Green is well known and loved restaurant on Twickenham Green. The owners, Adrienne and Tony Rowe, had the opportunity to create another branch - Arthur's in the Park in Shepperton. The brief was for an eco restaurant with a green living roof, and clear views around the Green. The site is in a flood risk zone so needed to be designed with appropriate flood protection.
Our clients reviewed some options and went with a Mies van der Rohe inspired design, resonant of his Farnsworth House. The concept of piloti, raising the floor level, fitted perfectly with the site. The project is designed to have a meadow green roof, a fireplace and a kitchen to serve 60 covers. Planning Approval was gained in December 2013
