Honorable Mention 2012 Green Dot Awards
Bankside BikeShed is a modular and flexible bike shelter for up to 24 bikes.
The fundamental innovation of the scheme is the integration of secure cycle locking facilities and a roof in one single, elegant and recognisable structure. The shelter can be easily adapted for different sites, with a wide roof protecting bikes from rain, and bays guiding the allocation of cycle spaces.
The project evolved from Studio Meda’s winning entry for the international Bankside BikeShed competition in March 2011, held by the Architecture Foundation and Better Bankside. Together with Marshalls Street Furniture the project was developed into a competitively priced system that is now commercially available.
