RIBA Regent Street Windows winners go on show

  • 1 Comment

Coffey Architects, KSR and Thomas-McBrien Architects have completed a series of £5,000 shop window installations in Regent Street, central London

Other teams chosen for the annual RIBA commission – which will remain on display for the next three weeks – include Freehaus, canalGRANDE, Nicholas Szczepaniak Architects and Red Deer.

The contest, for the Regent Street Association, was open to all RIBA members and chartered practices – previously it has been limited to London architects – and is now in its eighth year.

Regent Street was built by architect John Nash as part of a 19th-century urban improvement scheme linking Regent’s Park to St James’s Park. Today it is one of the West End’s most important retail destinations.

Last year’s selected teams included Bureau de Change, Knox Bhavan, Piercy & Co and Matheson Whiteley. The previous year’s 13 winners included EPR Architects, Coppin Dockray, Citizens Design Bureau, and Conran and Partners.

  • I assume when I saw this they were window displays of architect’s work in progress, and the finished cities, towns, houses etc. Not the usual FMCG tat?!

    We need to connect to the general public to recruit new talent, potential clients, explain what we do? There are retail units to spare on most high streets now. Coffee and sandwiches, cakes would provide traction. Is it worth the RIBA, or practises getting in the window with Nero or Starbucks? Coffee on the ground floor, and perhaps a design office upstairs?

    Come on guys? It’s a whole new world out there.
