Acme wins Bristol pavilion
The AJ can exclusively reveal that Acme saw off finalists FAT and Amin Taha in the contest run by developer the Bristol Alliance, a joint venture between Hammerson and Land Securities.
These early conceptual images (pictured) show how the ‘stand-alone café and leisure building’ will sit away from the new Cabot Circus shopping centre, which is being built by the Bristol Alliance and is due to open in September.
London-based Acme, which was founded last year by former Foreign Office Architects duo Friedrich Ludewig and Stefano Dal Piva, is already working on three jobs for Hammerson: the John Lewis store in Leeds; the Sevenstone Quarter retail scheme in Sheffield; and a masterplan
for the Bishopsgate Goodsyard in central London.
