The Cadogan Cafe, 2012

The Cadogan Café is designed to sit in the Duke of York Square on the Kings Road in Chelsea. Invited Competition Design Submission.

The elevated cafe pavilion combines architectural elegance with engineering excellence, to create a new interpretation of a historic building type, one with which most might be familiar – the market cross.

The cafe provides a visible location and a great place to watch the world go by, with views to the activity on the Kings Road and the listed Saatchi Gallery.

Its elevated position frees up valuable space at ground level in this congested corner of London. The cafe is designed to be delivered to site in one piece and hoisted into position in a weekend.
