Campbell Park Pavilion

The new 900 sqm development, for the CMK Town Council and The Parks Trust, will be located between the Events Plateau and Amphitheatre within the park, and will provide a new community space for Milton Keynes, with a community hall and a café. The hall will provide a space for theatre, music and dance. The design will also include accommodation for CMK Town Council, creating a focus to visitor education and tours, and supporting regular community events within the park.

Campbell Park Pavilion

Located at the heart of Milton Keynes, Campbell Park is a 100 acre landscape with formal gardens, water features, woodland and open pasture. The design proposals aim to enhance the Events Plateau, located in the Southwest corner of Campbell Park, creating a new community centre which will become a focal point for local residents and draw year-round visitors to the park. It is part of the extensive development of the Campbell Park district, which will bring many more residents to the area.

Campbell Park Pavilion

Stanton Williams’ design brings the different functions together as two buildings under one roof, following the sweep of the Amphitheatre. The building’s elegant and innovative timber structure was designed in close collaboration with structural engineers Webb Yates. The curved pavilion occupies the landscaped ridgeline, giving views across the park and offering shelter to visitors throughout the year.

Patrick Richard, Director at Stanton Williams said: “The new Pavilion sits in a prominent part of Campbell Park, one of Europe’s finest contemporary urban parks with its new age philosophy and modernist interpretation of the traditional English Landscape design. The Pavilion follows the ridge that defines the boundary between the structured formality of Milton Keynes and the natural informality of the Northamptonshire scenery.

In contrast to the orthogonal urban grid and buildings of the modernist town, the curved Pavilion responds to the circular landforms that characterise this unique landscape. As the building is to be approached from all directions it follows the 18th century tradition of the folly; ornamental buildings set in English gardens.”
