D&D London, the premium restaurant and bar group, has signed to launch its latest dining concept within the Pavilion development at the International Quarter London (IQL).

The Pavilion is currently under construction and will be a landmark building within IQL, which is at the gateway to the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in Stratford, east London.

The 17,000 sq ft space is made almost entirely from sustainable timber and split over three floors.

D&D’s design will incorporate a ground floor café and brasserie, first floor restaurant, and a rooftop bar.

The building includes a 3,000 sq ft roof terrace with views across the  and what will become East Bank, the future home to Sadler’s Wells and the V&A.

IQL is a £2.4bn joint venture between Lendlease and regeneration specialist.

The new 22-acre neighbourhood in Stratford includes new homes, offices, shops and restaurants.

Des Gunewardena, chairman and CEO of D&D London, said: “D&D has an established reputation for being at the forefront of restaurant development within emerging areas of cities both in the UK and oversees. We see Stratford as an exciting new cultural and leisure quarter of London, particularly following the 2012 Olympics, and we are admirers of Lendlease’s bold vision for IQL’s development. We look forward to occupying what will be some beautiful spaces and hope to develop restaurant, café and bar concepts to do justice to a building which is sure to become an iconic landmark for Stratford and for London.”
