Cadogan Café competition won by NEX

A competition to design the new Cadogan Café in Duke of York Square in Chelsea, London has been won by inventive architecture practice NEX. Organised by Malcolm Reading Consultants, the competition invited design studios to conceptualise a dynamic public café near to the Saatchi Gallery and NEX’s winning project features a roof terrace and glass wall which rises and falls depending on the weather.

Hugh Seaborn, Chief Executive of the Cadogan Estate said: “The Jury was won over by NEX’s design, which combines functionality with a sense of elegant self-containment - their building will be sleek as well as inventive and fun. We think it will intrigue passers-by and become a mini-landmark on the King’s Road. We look forward to working with the team as they develop their design for planning.”

Leading a team which included AKT II, Equals Cost Consultants, Atelier 10, DHA Design and The Enterprise Collective at the University of the Arts Chelsea, NEX will now work with the Cadogan Estate to develop their design for the new café. Click here to view images of NEX’s winning scheme.
