Architects sought for £2m redevelopment of cafe in Duke of York Square
A design competition has been launched to find a design team for a cafe in Duke of York Square in Chelsea.
The project is a £2 million redevelopment of the Gelateria Valerie cafe which is set back from the King’s Road on a site close to the Saatchi Gallery.
A shortlist of between five and seven teams will be drawn up by competition organiser Malcolm Reading Consultants on behalf of the Cadogan Estate.
Hugh Seaborn, chief executive of the Cadogan Estate, said: “We are keen to identify and support emerging talent whilst providing the opportunity of consulting locally from the outset.
“This is a pivotal site in one of the most vibrant parts of the capital and we are looking for designers with flair and originality.”
The shortlist will be announced in the autumn and the winning team confirmed by early December this year.
Details of the competition can be found here.
