Elsworth Sykes Architecture wins award

  • Comment

Elsworth Sykes Architecture (ESA) has won the Kensington and Chelsea Borough Council's New Buildings Design Award, for its Aroma Cafe (above). The award assessors commended ESA for its 'audacious and extraordinarily clever' building, praising it for successfully squeezing the 168m building into the narrow corner site off Kensington High Street. Since its completion in March 2000, and subsequent opening in June, the cafe has also attracted the attention of GMTV which now uses it as a venue for its breakfast TV show. Laura Hand, spokesperson for ESA, said: 'The project ended up better than we had hoped. We are very pleased with the outcome and feel it is our best to date.' The mayor of Kensington and Chelsea will present the award as part of the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea Environment Award Scheme on 9 October.
