Shortlist revealed for Taylor Wimpey house design competition

Six firms of architects have been shortlisted in Taylor Wimpey’s competition to design the house of the future.

The Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA), which is running the competition for the house-builder, said it received ‘an excellent response’ to the challenge that Taylor Wimpey laid down.

Taylor Wimpey’s Project 2020 involves evaluating trends and innovations in design, architecture, technology, materials and methodology with the aim of shaping the Taylor Wimpey range for 2020 and beyond.

Six entries were shortlisted to proceed to the next stage of the competition:

  • Artform Architects, Manchester
  • Igor Russo and Razvan Andrei, London
  • More Design, London
  • Newground Architects, London
  • Openstudio Architects, London
  • Origin 3 Studio, Bristol

The teams will now work on their design proposals and will be invited to attend an interview in September 2016.

RIBA adviser Glenn Howells said: “We received well over 100 entries, the standard of these were very high and stimulated much debate. After many hours the judging panel managed to select a shortlist of 6 terrific submissions, each of which stretched the concept of what the house could be and how it could best relate to changing technologies and patterns of living.”

Taylor Wimpey divisional managing director John Gainham said: “We were impressed by the response to the competition and the panel faced a difficult challenge selecting a shortlist of just six teams. Each of the final six offers a different approach and I am looking forward to seeing how each team develops their concept at the next stage.”
