Southend Pier Contest, Essex, South East England, UK

Southend Pier Design Competition Winner, England
This Swedish architecture practice were announced as the winner of the Southend Pier Competition in September 2009.

The winning scheme was chosen from among 73 international and local entries for the architecture competition run by the Landscape Institute on behalf of Southend-on-Sea Borough Council. The competition was run with the support of RIBA Competitions.

The centre has sloping walls and a twisting hyperbolic paraboloid roof form designed in partnership with structural engineers Price & Myers. Due to the challenging conditions of the site, contractors Kier fabricated the building off site at Tilbury Docks and craned it into place in one piece. Durable materials have been specified throughout to help achieve a long lifespan.

During the day the cultural centre’s GRP cladding has a translucent quality which changes tone, appearing white in bright sunlight and greenish grey when the sky is overcast. At night luminaires delineate the building’s sculptural profile.

Vävskedsgatan, residential Gothenburg, Sweden
Vävskedsgatan is no ordinary apartment block. It’s a challenge. We wanted to explore if we could build rental apartments, and became both building contractor and property owner in the process.
