Garsington Opera

Client : Wormsley Estate

The Garsington Opera pavilion is a semi-temporary structure, seating 600 occupants in a lightweight, transparent building. The fire strategy needed to reflect the simplicity of the building, avoiding the need for complex systems or intrusive compartmentation.  The strategy instead takes advantage of the openness of the building to allow a very simple approach to be adopted.  We have been involved with retaining the original strategy while the building has been adapted over the recent season of use.
