Contest opens for 'revolutionary' Hampshire retirement home

[Registration should be completed before 22 January] The RIBA and developer McCarthy & Stone have launched a design contest for a Hampshire retirement home

The contest seeks a ‘new concept’ for housing people aged over 55 years with a budget of £110 per square foot.

The brief calls for competitors ‘to think beyond what has previously been available in terms of retirement accommodation in the UK, and concentrate on delivering exciting and innovative new designs which will meet the demands of baby boomers looking for something a little different in later life’.

The winning team will be expected to take forward its scheme to completion.

A shortlist of five will each take home £2,000 with the winner receiving £3,000

Entrants are required to pay a £50 +VAT registration fee.
