It will be home to 7 people with varying requirements. Whilst Entrants should be mindful of its context, it shouldn’t unduly constrain the thinking or imagination necessary to develop a work of art.
This anonymous, open international design competition aims to generate new ideas and proposals for the construction and delivery of a new house and its setting on a former site for a golf course. The design responses should demonstrate a concept of beauty whilst providing a home that responds to the brief, from concepts to details.
