Inventory Site Record

The Pavilion (Kingston)

Brief Description

The Pavilion is a rare and important example of the late work of Oliver Hill, a leading English architect of the mid C20th. It was built for Mr and Mrs Goldetz and is one of only three post-war houses designed by Hill. His design reflects the interest at that time in C18th Garden Pavilions. The house is set to the rear of the site, which has numerous well-grown trees.
