​Bespoke Access Award

At a special event at the Palace of Westminster, Motionspot & Ryder Architecture were announced the winners of the inaugural Bespoke Access Awards, a competition to design fully accessible hotel rooms

Open Culture and Leisure

Motionspot & Ryder Architecture's winning entry, 'AllGo’, is a unique, universalised approach to hotel room design system to ensure that all hotel rooms are functional, flexible and accessible.

The competition attracted entries from around the world including submissions from Germany, Russia, Hong Kong and Canada. Entrants competed across a range of categories, including Product and Service Design, as well as the Celia Thomas Prize, worth £20,000 and believed to be the largest cash prize in the UK for a design concept.

The entries were judged by a panel which included Paralympic gold medalist Baroness Tanni Grey-Thompson, Stirling Prize-winning architect Alan Stanton, and Baroness Celia Thomas herself, convened in the Autumn to assess the submissions.
