RIBA Competition: Hereford Buttermarket regeneration

  • Comment

Herefordshire council seek architects for the regeneration of Hereford’s historic Buttermarket

The RIBA Competitions Office has been appointed to run a two-stage competition for the re-development and regeneration of Hereford’s Buttermarket. The competition will be organised on behalf of Herefordshire Council in partnership with Advantage West Midlands.

The Buttermarket was originally opened in 1860, and was once devoted entirely to the sale of butter, cheese and other dairy products.The building has an ornate clock tower and is a grade II listed building. Today the Market Hall, still referred to as the Buttermarket, houses over 70 stalls.

Open to architects, the competition will ask entrants to come up with design ideas for the interior of the market, and to think about how it can be improved and enhanced to help it thrive and survive in a highly competitive sector. A key challenge to entrants will be to test out how cutting edge and innovative design can support and promote the regeneration of a place and its surrounding environments.
