Located in central Cardiff’s Grangetown district, the city’s largest and most ethnically diverse ward, Grange Pavilion is a community-led redevelopment of a former bowls Pavilion. Supported by extensive partnerships and social value objectives, the project aimed to significantly improve the community’s future wellbeing and social cohesion with co-created community facilities and public realm for a high-quality urban environment.
Partners are united by a core mission to demonstrably deliver strong outcomes and meaningful change for the Grangetown community by focusing on the strengths, abilities and existing assets of residents and empowering them to take the lead at every opportunity.
Following years of extensive dialogue and engagement, Grange Pavilion and its ‘place’ brief were actively formed by residents.
The building solution acts as a framework for a variety of interactions, allowing the energy and vibrancy of the community to be physically embraced by the building. With strong leadership and experience from external partners, including extensive capital project management by Cardiff University as a temporary Asset Guardian, the new 600 sq m Grange Pavilion will deliver positive change for the people, communities and organisations that created it.
