RHS Garden Hyde Hall is a public display garden run by the Royal Horticultural Society in the English county of Essex, east of London, the largest RHS Garden comprising 360 acres. The venue also includes several buildings, and the new to be completed Hilltop Restaurant and Activity Barn will help to create an enticing destination for visitors to RHS Garden Hyde Hall.
To describe the creativity and structure of the scheme, Architects Cullinan Studio says “the design for the Hilltop Restaurant and Activity Barn is characterised by a rigorous and repetitive structural language – a splayed, glue-laminated timber portal frame will march along the loft Restaurant and Activity spaces, intersecting at a delicate nodel point at the apex. The nodel point will simultaneously brace the structure whilst supporting the long cantilevered gables at the southern ends”. MACH Acoustics is delighted to be supporting with acoustics consultancy. The project is attractive and will no doubt delight many visitors for years to come.
