The AJ can reveal the 24 architects invited to the next stage of the competition to design a £7 million dining hall at Homerton College, Cambridge

Organised by Malcolm Reading Consultants, the competition for the new 300-person dining hall and supporting facilities, including kitchen and back-office areas, attracted interest from 155 practices.

Among those who will now be invited to come back with their responses to the outline brief are up-and-coming practices vPPR, Baynes and Mitchell Architects, Denizen Works and Roz Barr Architects.

A shortlist of five or six practices will subsequently be asked to submit designs for the 1,400m² scheme which is planned to start on site in 2018.

David Hamilton, director of projects at Malcolm Reading Consultants, said: ‘The interest in this competition has been exceptional, and we were delighted by the quality and breadth of responses to our initial call for declarations of interest.

‘This process presents a new model for invited competitions, and we will look to use it again. It has introduced us to a whole new cohort of fresh architectural talent, who we hope will continue to show interest in our future competitions.

He added: ‘The 24-strong longlist represents a balanced, diverse and intriguing cross section of architectural talent, from established to emerging firms. We look forward to equally strong Expression of Interest submissions in the next round.’

Homerton College was founded in 1768 in London, relocating to Cambridge in the 1890s, and is today one of the only Cambridge colleges able to house all undergraduates on site for four years.

An £8.5 million accommodation block designed by Martindales Architects will complete on the campus later this year.
