Stitch, Moxon and Gollifer Langston on Fort Albert shortlist

  • Comment

A nine-strong shortlist for the high-profile Albert Fort residential scheme on the Isle of Wight has been announced

Young guns AR Design Studio, Architecture Initiative and Stitch Architects join Moxon, Barlow Henly, Fletcher Priest, Gollifer Langston and traditional and historical experts James Armitage and Sheppard Architects on the shortlist.

In September the developer, Cleanslate, opened a competition calling for ‘innovative’ residential schemes for the site which lies adjacent to the island’s historically important Fort.Albert which was built in 1856.

The developer said it had ‘…no pre-conceptions about the future of the site but participants should be aware of its historical heritage, prominent location and contextual importance when preparing their submissions.’

Whittled down from 70 entries, the winner will be announced in the New Year.
