Six fight it out for Eltham Baths housing scheme

  • Comment
A shortlist of six UK firms will battle it out to design a mixed-tenure housing development for Ujima, one of the largest black-led housing associations in Europe.

The scheme will look to utilise the Eltham Baths site in Greenwich, south-east London, by providing new housing and relocating the existing swimming pool to another site nearby.

The shortlist includes A-EM Studio and Audley English Associates, Jestico and Whiles, Niall McLaughlin Architects, Walter Menteth Architects, PCKO and Anne Thorne Architects.

The six practices were whittled down from 49 initial expressions of interest, selected by a jury panel which was looking for architects most capable of helping Ujima deliver its project by an innovative urban scheme that will enhance the public realm.

Panel member and Ujima development consultant Malcolm Gardner said: 'We are very much looking forward to seeing the varied, but wholly sustainable, design solutions that the shortlisted teams propose for this site.'

The final six teams will present their schemes to the jury panel when they meet to select a winner in mid-June.

The winner will be commissioned to develop its design proposal up to and including the planning application; Ujima then intends to enter into a fixed-price Design and Build contract.
