(ADW) The striking pavilion building, a prominent feature of Merl Park on the outskirts of Luxembourg City, is to be renovated and expanded, according to plans released on Monday.

The building was built in 1977 by architect Pol Holweck and it is from the same stable that the announcement for a facelift was made; "Holweck Bingen Architectes".

Council members in Luxembourg voted on Monday on revised renovation and expansion plans estimated at about 3.3 million euros.  The basic structure and appearance of the building however will not change and the 1970s style will be preserved.

Work completed by June 2017

The existing pavilion that overlooks the picturesque artificial lake, will be modernised and an annexe building on the eastern side will be built in which a kitchen and sanitary facilities will be housed, rather than in the current “Rotonde” building. In their place a larger restaurant area with a conservatory and terrace will be created.

The new exterior will have a clear view of the playground area, the park’s lake, and will be easily accessible from outside the park.

Construction is due to begin in October this year and should be completed by June 2017.
