Ronalds scoops Pestalozzi comp - image

  • Comment
Tim Ronalds Architects has won the competition to design a masterplan for the Pestalozzi International Village in East Sussex.

The architect, who is best known for his restoration and reworking of Hackney Empire, beat five other shortlisted practices to win the contest to revamp the 70ha Sedlescombe site.

Among the losing finalists were FAT, Architects Design Partnership, BBM Sustainable Design, Patel Taylor Architects and Design Engine Architects.

The winning practice will now get the chance to overhaul the existing estate, owned by the Pestalozzi International Village Trust - a charitable organisation dedicated to educating young people from low-income families in developing countries.

More than 40 architects originally entered the RIBA-organised competition, which was judged by a panel headed by the Duke of Gloucester.
