This bike store by Sarah Wigglesworth Architects is in the Bermondsey Square regeneration area, on the site of the historic Bermondsey Antiques Market
The landscape proposal for the area (by East) was conceived as a carpet on which an array of jewels are scattered – benches, bollards, cycle hoops and a petanque pitch. The bike store’s triangular stainless-steel cladding panels are based on the geometry of the unravelled, gem-like bollards from the external landscaping.
The store is formed from 13 Douglas fir portal frames clad with translucent glass-reinforced plastic (GRP) sheeting on the internal face. The double-stacked bike-rack system is by Josta.
