Your Bike Shed Cycle Café & Repair Workshop

Architect/ Designer: Owners, Martin Harman & Adele Procter
Client/Developer: As Above
Builder: As Above
Presented by: David Heath, Society for Protection of Ancient Buildings, one of our four judges

‘Your Bike Shed’ has become a very popular gathering place for the cycling fraternity – providing a unique service for their customers who can now relax over a coffee while their bikes are being fixed – and is also a meeting place and music venue. The project involved the refitting of a grand Victorian corner shop and its basement, already beautifully fitted out with its original glazed brick walls and decorative floor of encaustic tiles. The work of both design and construction were undertaken by the owners themselves for a budget of some £20k – using second-hand materials and off-the-peg fittings and furniture. The result is witty and engaging with none of the pretensions of Sunday Supplement design. It is very well worked out and has atmosphere in bucketful’s.
