The Cadogan Estate is seeking a design team to create an exceptional and innovative new café for Duke of York Square

The Cadogan Estate’s decision to build a new building on this key site, offers the opportunity for fresh thinking about enhancing the space, connecting with the existing environment and local community and above all, making a distinctive contribution to this historic and stylish part of London. The Cadogan Café Competition, which seeks to find the best team for this project, will have two stages. Initially, Expressions of Interest are sought, following which five to seven teams will be shortlisted (stage two).
