Budding London-based firm Architects in Residence (AiR) has seen off a raft of up-and coming designers to win the contest to design a new riverside café-bar in Rotherham, South Yorkshire. AiR beat the likes of Glowacka Rennie, Barker and Coutts and Houghton Budd Architects to win the competition, targeted at young practices with less than three years' experience. The winning scheme, which will have a recyclable steel frame, a dry-stacking block wall system and will be built off-site, is to be the centrepiece of the town's £35 million Westgate redevelopment. More than 100 firms entered the contest organised by Rotherham Metropolitan Borough Council and Yorkshire Forward.
