ARCHITECTURAL AND DESIGN COMPETITION

An architectural competition is being launched by St Helena Government, to encourage architects and designers who have been in practice for no more than five years to develop concepts for a housing project for St Helena, with designs that are innovative and affordable to build.

Applicants are invited to develop project specific design proposals for which awards of £4000, £3000, and £2000 will be made. His Excellency Governor Capes, will chair a judging panel made up of Housing Executive, Andy Crowe, Government Architect, James Stewart and representatives of local residents. Islanders will also be able to make their comments on each of the shortlisted entries at a public exhibition, to be held in April, before the judging panel makes its final decision.

Housing Executive, Andy Crowe said:

‘Great architecture has helped to attract visitors to many places around the world. So we are looking for quality homes that are affordable and eyecatching. It’s a good way of making sure that we invest as wisely as possible in the future of the Island. We’re aiming to offer the winning designer the chance to build some of the new homes that we need in our Comprehensive Development Areas, as well as giving self- builders a modern, new blueprint.’

The deadline for receipt of competition entries is 15 March 2013. This will be followed by a public exhibition of shortlisted entries on 14 April 2013, shortly followed by announcement of the winning practice on 30 April 2013.

Full details of the competition can be viewed on the SHG website under A Housing Design for St Helena (found on the Homepage) www.sainthelena.gov.sh.
