Planning permission granted for Mizzi Studio's undulating, brass Serpentine Cafe
Mizzi Studio is honoured to announce that our latest project - The Serpentine Cafe - has been granted planning permission by Westminster Council. Commissioned by artisan coffee brand Colicci, the structure's fantastical sweeping brass canopy will sit proudly on its prestigious site in Hyde Park, minutes away from some of London's most remarkable architectural hot spots - The Serpentine Pavilion and Zaha Hadid's Serpentine Sackler gallery. We are proud to be amongst such influential company and we hope it will be a source of inspiration and joy for everyone who loves London's stunning Royal Parks.
“Our design for the Serpentine Cafe took inspiration from the Serpentine lake itself – its name and meandering shape – and infused those influences with new levels of movement and texture. We created heightened drama by integrating the sweeping motion of a stingray’s flight into the canopy. The form of the roof was designed to reach its climactic point while hovering above the entrance – as though a zoomorphic cape had been pulled through the air over the entire cafe.” Jonathan Mizzi
