Charity seeks proposals to co-locate homeless accommodation with private-sector uses

Competition judges include McAslan & Partners founder John McAslan, and practice associate Heather Macey, deputy London mayor for housing James Murray, and Channel 4 News anchor Jon Snow, who is patron of New Horizon.
