Enfield Council and Metropolitan Thames Valley Housing are asking emerging, local and BAME-led architects, designers, community groups and artists to propose innovative ideas for intergenerational living.
The competition is seeking innovative thinking and high-quality designs – of both individual homes and the housing development – in order to find ways of building stronger communities, tackle social isolation and bring neighbours together, so that ultimately, people across Enfield have access to a wider network of social support.
Intergenerational living is a concept, based on the idea that residents of different generations, such as school age children, young adults and older residents, live together and share resources, skills and support. Intergenerational housing, both wider housing developments and individual households, can help to build more robust and resilient communities.
To enter the competition, complete the application form (PDF) and return by email to firstname.lastname@example.org, along with a concise CV or organisation profile, and one piece of work you have already completed (refer to the brief below for more information).
The deadline for entries for the first stage is 4pm on Friday 7 August. Shortlisted entrants will be asked to develop high quality proposals, explaining how their designs will bring communities together.
