Mizzi Studio owned by Maltese Architect Jonathan Mizzi, has been chosen to design nine kiosks in London’s Royal Parks namely Hyde Park, Green Park and St James’s Park.
The first of eight has just recently launched. The kiosk’s organic-inspired design complements the Grade I listed backdrop and ideology of The Royal Parks’ sustainability.
The result of such striking, classy yet simple and functional forms were due to the sustainable materials and traditional craft techniques used by Mizzi Studio.
A lot of research on the parks’ heritage and history were made by Mizzi and Colicci to ensure that each kiosk is tailored to its respective site, thus increasing and guaranteeing a refreshment break that’s an equally important part of a visitor’s journey through the parks.
The nine kiosks will be located at the entrances of Hyde Park, St James’s Park and Green Park. Although aesthetically different, their 360-degree sculptural canopy is what they’ll share in common.
Mizzi Studio are also behind the dramatic design of the brass-roofed Cafe launching in Spring 2019. The Cafe, which will be located in Hyde Park, draws inspiration from Japanese architecture.
Jonathan Mizzi, Director of Mizzi Studio, commented: “We are absolutely delighted to see the first kiosk open in Green Park. It is an honour to have been entrusted with such a high-profile project of this size and scale. The kiosks form an important part of The Royal Parks’ heritage by serving the public with refreshments and acting as local information points”.
