Congratulations to all at Chris Dyson Architects LLP on the announcement that the Crystal Palace Park Café, is nominated one of the 2021 Civic Trust Awards Regional Finalists.

The aim of the Civic Trust Awards is to encourage the very best in architecture, promoting improvements the built environment for us all through design, sustainability, inclusiveness and accessibility, but also rewarding projects that offer a positive social, cultural, environmental or economic benefit to their local communities. The Civic Trust Awards is Europe’s longest running architectural and built environment awards programme.

The Café is a project that LBC are proud to have provided Building Control advice on; a 2-storey building that provides a park level cafe and terrace and an event space at first floor level. The new building is clad externally in half round cedar shingles.
