Arup architect wins Groucho Club bike stand competition

Architect Andy Barnes of Arup Associates has won the competition to design a bike stand for London’s Groucho Club in Soho

The Aerogenerator Project-backed contest, run in association with Grimshaw and The Groucho Club, was launched as part of the London Festival of Architecture. The brief was to design a wall-mounted stand that could securely park at least five bikes within a budget of £1500.

Barnes’ victorious scheme was described Nicholas Grimshaw, who helped judge the prize with Tim Wilson, head chef at The Groucho Club and Channel 4 newscaster Jon Snow as ‘a playful yet functional solution which was in tune to the values of the member’s club’.

Leo Robert, a Part II architectural assistant working at Grimshaw was named as runner up.

If planning permission is granted then the winning design will be built and installed at The Groucho Club.
