Surface Design Awards

Our creative ‘meanwhile’ lighting scheme for Sayer Street & The Meadow has picked up another award nomination, this time for the 2021 Surface Design Awards.

The Meadow is an important pedestrian link which connects Elephant & Castle station to the centre of the mixed-use development. At night, the space is transformed by glowing light installations that mark the entrance to the park. 

Sayer St is a contemporary reinterpretation of the modern high street. Designed to capture the imagination all ages, the space is brought to life through sculpture, natural play and places to rest.   

Lendlease appointed B|D Landscape Architects, Jan Kattein Architects and Michael Grubb Studio in December 2018. Both projects were designed for Lendlease and form part of the wider urban regeneration in Elephant & Castle.

The Surface Design Awards recognise and celebrate the best use of innovative surface materials in architecture and design from across the globe. Launched 8 years ago, these prestigious Awards keep growing year-on-year and are often seen as a reference for the architecture and design industry. Judged by some of the leading designers in the industry, the 2020 edition had an impressive 107 entries spanning 13 different countries including India, Australia, China and the USA.
