10th Mar 2020: Heath Park contest longlist announced

A longlist has been selected in the Vision of Future Living ideas competition, run by RIBA on behalf of SOG Ltd. The contest seeks to redesign the 60 ac Heath Business and Technical Park in Runcorn, UK, in order to provide a sustainable, multi-use and carbon free environment. The first phase sought non-site-specific conceptual ideas on the design of future workplaces, living spaces and external spaces and how they relate to one another.

The authors of the longlisted designs are as follows:

Atelier Cole, Cambodia
Ecoresponsive Environments Ltd, London
Harper Perry, Newcastle
Kimia Benam & Paul Treacy, London
Parallel Collective, London
Periscope Landscape & Architecture Ltd, London
Pixel, New York & Hong Kong
Tom Cookson & Sarah Carroll, London

The eight teams have been invited to interview with the evaluation panel to talk through their initial concept.  Three teams will then be selected to go forward into the second phase of the competition to develop their initial designs in relation to Heath Park.

John Lewis MBE, owner of SOG Group, said: “From what we have seen so far, I think it’s going to be quite a challenge to select the three submissions for the final shortlist. This is a very exciting period for our Heath Park project and I would like to thank all those who have taken part in our RIBA competition.”
