12 schemes have been shortlisted from over 100 entries

The Royal Society of Architects in Wales has revealed the shortlist for their ReDesigning the Terrace competition.

Held in association with the Welsh Government, CADW, RCT Homes and social housing provider Grŵp Gwalia Cyf, the competition aimed to investigate the balance between Welsh architectural heritage and the drive for low energy homes.

From over 100 expressions of interest, a dozen schemes have been shortlisted by the judging panel which comprised representatives from all partner organisations. The shortlisted schemes include entries from Jarry Tate Architects, Threefold Architects, Charles Grylls, and Gillard Associates.

Andrew Sutton, RSAW President said: “We were delighted with the standard of entries and impressed with the innovative approaches taken to the challenge of balancing our built heritage with our sustainability goals on small sites.

It’s especially exciting that the competition has two Registered Social Landlord on board with one considering taking the winning scheme beyond a design concept.”

All of the shortlisted entries will be exhibited at the RSAW’s annual conference “Sustaining our Heritage” on December 13. The winner will also be announced at the event by the minister for housing regeneration and heritage Huw Lewis.

    Knock them down and start again.

    Some of these schemes propose taking a small space and making it even smaller.

  • Was this a competition for professional architectural practices or 1st year students, it's hard to tell with some of these entries.
