Swiss bathroom company Laufen recently supported the eighth annual student design competition, American Institute of Architects – AIA – UK Student Charette, which was hosted at the Roca London Gallery.


The University of Westminster won this year’s challenge for its “highly commended” ‘Squares of Light’ project. The event was held at the end of October, and was open to all architecture and interior design degree students across the UK.

The brief for this year’s competition focused on the “ever-changing area of London”. Students were asked to speculate on the future of Lots Road Auctions site in the 21st Century, following the sale of the site in 2017 to the borough of Kensington and Chelsea for £10.5m.


“Laufen is proud to support the AIA competition which continues to be a success year after year,” said Laufen marketing manager Emma Mottram. “We are delighted to be able to work alongside the extremely talented young designers entering the industry with fresh ideas and designs.”
