This new extension to an old mansion style hotel and private members club house is an all glass pavilion with a pre-patinated copper roof. The new build element is a new 8x40m lounge / restaurant for the Lensbury Club Hotel and is situated on the banks of the Thames at Teddington Lock. The scheme is in Metropolitan Open Land within the Thames flood plain and is built on stilts to the approval of the Environment Agency.
The idea of the glass extension was to bring the exterior into the building and allow the visitors of the club to be closer to the picturesque woodland surroundings.
The project was completed in summer 2006 and was built after Earle Architects successfully secured planning consent following an invitation to compete in a limited competition.
