Description Change this

The Serpentine Restaurant was a canopy-like building in Hyde Park which was dedicated to new private catering facilities. It was a part of a project which included two new restaurants in the same area of the park. It consisted of concrete terraces which provided panoramic views of a nearby pond as well as new spaces for service rooms underneath the structure. The key feature of the structure were glass pyramid-shaped roofs arranged across the terraces. Car park for the visitors was placed the way it didn't interfere with the design of the restaurant building and the views across the park. The original structure was then extended twice and completely demolished in 1990.
