The judges told me they had a very hard job choosing the winner due to the quality of the work submitted. Both the winner and runner up are from Lambeth Academy and the event was held near a central part of the Clapham Project near the bus stand in Clapham Old Town.

The Clapham Gateway Design Study has just commenced with the appointment of design consultants Urban Initiatives. This exciting project will lead to a package of public realm improvements being developed in Clapham Old Town, the pavement, the area behind the tube station and part of Venn Street.

The winning entry will become the logo on all communications regarding the project including consultation with the local community.
