Northacre to sponsor the Serpentine’s Summer House exhibition

After branding up the V&A’s “What is Luxury?” show last year, ultra-prime London developer Northacre is firming up its high culture and design creds by signing up to sponsor the first Serpentine Summer House exhibition, an extension of the tremendous Summer Pavilion initiative, from the 10th June to 9th October 2016.

The exhibition will see four of-the-moment international architects – Kunlé Adeyemi, Barkow Leibinger, Yona Friedman and Asif Khan – each create a cocktail shed to accompany Danish architect Bjarke Ingels’ take on the main pavilion. Goldman Sachs is the headline sponsor, supported by Northacre.

It’s the first time five architects will be involved in the Serpentine’s summertime architecture fest, now in its 16th year. The four architects have been invited to submit designs for a 24 square metre summer house that “considers Queen Caroline’s Temple and its relationship with its surroundings”. The temple is a classical-style summer house built in 1734, just behind the Serpentine Gallery. In line with the criteria for the selection of the Pavilion architect, each of the chosen architects has yet to build a permanent building in England.

  • Kunlé Adeyemi’s Summer House is an inverse replica of Queen Caroline’s Temple – a tribute to its robust form, space and material, recomposed into a new sculptural object:

  • Barkow Leibinger were inspired by another, now extinct, 18th Century pavilion also designed by William Kent, which rotated and offered 360 degree views of the Park:

  • Yona Friedman’s Summer House takes the form of a modular structure that can be assembled and disassembled in different formations and builds upon the architect’s pioneering project La Ville Spatiale (Spatial City) begun in the late 1950s:

  • Asif Khan’s design is inspired by the fact that Queen Caroline’s Temple was positioned in a way that would allow it to catch the sunlight from The Serpentine lake:

This year’s Serpentine Pavilion, designed by Bjarke Ingels Group (BIG), is an “unzipped wall” that is “transformed from straight line to three-dimensional space”, createng a dramatic structure that by day houses a café and free family activities and by night becomes a space for the gallery’s Park Nights programme of performance art fun.

Niccolò Barattieri di San Pietro, CEO, Northacre: “We are delighted to partner with the Serpentine Galleries and its ambitious Summer House initiative that celebrates architecture in London – something that is close to our hearts. For 25 years, Northacre has been at the forefront of the revival and development of buildings with an architectural legacy and we are thrilled to be a part of this exhibition alongside this London design institution.”
