The proposals have been drawn up by Architecture 00:/, Carmody Groarke, NEX, Duggan Morris Architects, TaylorSnell - a new outfit set up by Michael Hopkins + Partners alumni Bill Taylor and Robin Snell, and Pernilla Ohrstedt.

Duggan Morris: ‘Featuring a singularity of colour-tinted terrazzo for walls, roof, floor and ceilings, internal spaces and perimeter landscape will overlap.’

Organised by Malcolm Reading Consultants for Cadogan Estates, the two-stage competition to design a replacement for the Gelateria Valerie in Duke of York Square received nearly 150 expressions of interests.

The scheme will sit next to the main thoroughfare to the Saatchi Gallery and within the larger Duke of York development, masterplanned and designed by Paul Davis + Partners.
