Cadogan Cafe in Chelsea, UK by Edgley Design

Our proposal aims to improve the social function and attractiveness of Duke of York square. The café is a bold and distinct formal proposition, framed by and reacting to the particular scale, proportion and environmental conditions of the historic site. Recessed landscaping extends the café’s seating into the surrounding pavement.

The dynamic shading system is a shifting sculptural form, appearing to hover above a transparent, glazed base. In winter, shading elements enclose a space on top of the café, unfolding in summer to reveal a platform for public art. In response to the RBKC Cultural Place-making strategy, the café has a sculptural presence in its own right, but is also a flexible platform for a range of collaborative arts programmes.
