The new island pavilion and footbridge is a second RIBA award winning collaboration with Architect Robin Snell and Partners for Garsington Opera on the Wormsley Estate following on from the nearby  Garsington Opera Pavilion, which won a national RIBA award in 2015.

The pavilion will be used for entertaining during the summer months of opera, including dining, receptions, art exhibitions and music recitals.  Sound Space Design provided room acoustics advise and performance planning services.

It has also been designed to house ‘Cracked Egg (Blue)’, a stainless steel sculpture by artist Jeff Koons.
