City launches design competition to deliver housing on former dock sites

Hull city council has launched a design competition to find architects for a new residential neighbourhood earmarked for former dock sites.

The hunt, organised by RIBA Competitions, seeks ideas for a “unique and distinctive urban neighbourhood” on two adjacent plots with a total area of 3.2ha.

The council suggested it was open-minded on the typology of the new homes it sought, describing the competition as an “opportunity to explore a variety of building heights”, although it said “an element of townhouses” should be part of the mix.
