The Cadogan Estate today released images of the six shortlisted design proposals put forward by the design teams vying to win the Cadogan Café design competition. The competition - run by Malcolm Reading Consultants - for the £2 million project to redevelop the existing café, positioned in a key site in Duke of York Square in Chelsea, was launched in July.
The proposals by the shortlisted teams: Architecture 00:/, Carmody Groarke, Duggan Morris Architects, NEX, Pernilla Ohrstedt & Sarah Price Landscapes and TaylorSnell, will be presented to the competition jury at the end of November. The winner will be announced in early December.
The teams’ models and boards will also be on display to the public at an exhibition in the Saatchi Gallery for three days in the week beginning 26th November 2012. One hundred and forty seven architectural teams from all over the world expressed interest in being considered for the project. The shortlist was drawn-up by a selection panel on the basis of the teams’ response to the brief and previous work.
