Neon wins contest to design RIBA Lounge at MIPIM UK

  • Comment

Emerging practice Neon has won the competition to design RIBA’s lounge at the inaugural MIPIM UK

Seeing off competition from 27 other entries, the London-based practice has been selected to design RIBA’s space at the property fair.

The RIBA lounge will occupy a 200m² area in the exhibition hall providing a space for RIBA members to meet clients.

Neon previously took part in the RIBA’s Regent Street Window Project in 2013 – coincidentally a photo of its scheme appeared in the call for entries to the MIPIM competition.

The practice will receive a fee of £5,000 for the scheme which has a budget of £10,000. Neon will now work up its designs for the space which will be presented to the RIBA later this month.

George King, partner at NEON said: ‘NEON are thrilled to have been chosen to design the RIBA Lounge at MIPIM UK. The event promises to be a fantastic platform to showcase the best of British architecture and we are excited to be a part of it. We look forward to working with the RIBA to create a space that highlights the exceptional work of its members.’

Peter De Soissons, sales director for MIPIM UK, who was part of the judging panel, added: ‘We had a great and diverse selection of excellent proposals for the RIBA visitors lounge at MIPIM UK. We are delighted with the panels selection of Neon, an exciting and award winning practice that clearly have the expertise to create the MIPIM lounge environment to the brief and were selected also because of their strong creative ability to ‘enliven everyday experiences’ and elicit a more emotional response to the brief in an exciting and engaging way.’

MIPIM UK takes place at London’s Olympia from 15 – 17 October.

The event in west London will host the inaugural Architecture Tomorrow exhibition – a curated show of nearly 200 forthcoming  projects designed by UK architects.
