The scheme will now be developed with RCT Homes

The winner of the Royal Society of Architects in Wales’ ReDesigning the Terrace competition has been revealed.  

From over 100 expressions of interest and 12 shortlisted schemes, Hatcher Prichard Architects with Ramboll has won the competition. The practice saw off competition from Jerry Tate Architects, Threefold Architects and Gillard Associates.

The competition aimed to investigate the balance between Welsh architectural heritage and the drive for low energy homes.

The judging panel described the project as: “A realistic practical scheme which tackles the challenges of lifestyle, fuel poverty, affordability whilst not compromising the character of the traditional Welsh terraced house.”

RCT Homes will now work with Hatcher Prichard to develop the scheme and construct the design on one of their existing plots.

  • Is it a house for really tiny people, or is the furniture bigger than normal?

  • Apologies I forgot that this is how big we build homes now.

  • 'Redesigning the Terrace' implies they expected an improvement. Someone must be really disappointed.
