Emslie Horniman Pleasance
Studio E designed a series of elements to revive the hundred-year-old Emslie Horniman Park, each suggesting a particular leisure activity, and all appropriately festive for the park’s position on the route of the Notting Hill Carnival.
The elements vary in size from small buildings, such as the load-bearing brick sports pavilion with a stressed timber roof, to furniture and the wind-vane designed by the artist Peter Fink. Different areas, designated by texture, culture and shape, cater for organised five-a-side sports, children’s activities, a dog run and restful spots. Devising cost-effective structures was an essential part in the successful applications from various lottery and community funding bodies.
