Shawhill Links Pavillion
Status: Completed 2013
New Pavilion and link building
This new pavilion was initially designed with an ogee slate roof, for which there is a delightful Scottish precedent, but was subsequently revised to incorporate a bell-cote, in which a bell is to be installed for ringing in the new year, and for other celebrations. The pavilion provides a new formal entrance to the house and, with two curved galleries, links the house with a nearby outbuilding.
The north elevation presents a plain stone 'garden wall' to either side of the pavilion, behind which are curved galleries and a terrace, open to the south, and with a panoramic view over the Solway Firth. The galleries have a glazed structure of green oak posts and beams, and a traditional slate roof. This ultimately became an increasingly client-led project, with many interesting and quirky details.
