Mountsfield Park Café

Client: Private client

Architect: Office 25 Architects


Mountsfield Park Café is a new-build café project in Lewisham which is applying a modular construction method, utilising a timber frame and cladding system. A key aim of the project is to provide a functional space that is comfortable for staff and visitors. The café is, therefore, implementing curtain walling and roof-lights to benefit from good levels of daylight.

The project team worked with a local community group to find optimal solutions for a community waste scheme using the park composting facility. The ecological impact is mitigated through building on the existing hard landscaping, where possible. Our sustainability specialists worked closely with the client and project team to liaise with the local planning authority, to negotiate a proportionate BREEAM planning condition for the site.
