Housing association launches competition for south London site

  • Comment
Britain's biggest housing association for black and minority ethnic groups has launched an invited architectural competition.

The Ujima Housing Association wants to find an architect for a 0.36 ha site in Eltham, south east London, which is currently occupied by a swimming pool.

Ujima - which was set up in 1977 and is now London-wide - is the UK's biggest housing association committed to housing black and minority ethnic groups.

According to the brief, the winning scheme, which will be budgeted at £13m, will create an 'architectural sense of place, enhanced use of the public realm, with an appropriate mix of buildings in which there is no differentiation between the private and public elements of the development'.

From the initial expressions of interest, up to six teams will be invited to develop design proposals, with each of the shortlisted teams receiving an honorarium of £4,500 plus VAT.

For a preliminary briefing paper contact the RIBA Competitions Office on 0113 234 1335 or visit www.architecture.com/competitions

The Expression of Interest deadline is 2pm on 20 March 2007.
