This is the competition-winning scheme by London-based architects McCloy and Muchemwa to design a temporary bench installation at One New Change in the City of London. The bench takes on a folded form, providing places that work for a variety of situations such as meetings with various numbers of people, waiting for a loved one or simply taking a rest. The folds are intended to remind the user of the comforts of home furniture, and its undulating form and bright colours provide an “architectural sugar rush”. The project was published widely, including in Architect’s Journal, Architectural Review, Wallpaper, and Dezeen.

Working with a confined and difficult site, the London-based architects EPR Architects delivered a LEED Platinum and BREEAM Excellent rated workplace in the heart of the City of London. 100 Cheapside features highly flexible, efficient floor plates. The façade combines Portland stone with high-spec glazing, and steps back as the building rises. The building is highly sustainable as well as beautiful, featuring passive cooling, rainwater attenuation, a grey water recycling plant and green and brown rooves. As well as bird, bat and insect boxes, the design incorporates photovoltaic cells and thermal solar panels.
