Camberwell-based architects Studio Meda have won the competition run by Better Bankside to design a new bikeshed for Southwark and the South Bank.

LCC chief executive, Ashok Sinha, who helped judge the competition, said: "The elegant-yet-economical design not only provides sheltered cycle parking, but does so with an aesthetic that would hold its own outside any of Bankside’s statement buildings."

There are plans to install the winning bikeshed design in various locations in Southwark around the South Bank area. 

Also attracting considerable attention for its wooden curves was the short-listed design from Atmos.
