White Arkitekter won the Salford House 4 Life competition.
White teamed up with Great Places Housing Group, Northerngroup, Stockleys, AECOM and Gardiner & Theobald to form a consortia to work on the project to design the Greengate area of Salford.
The 1.45ha brownfield site could be developed to form a new exemplar of family housing combining innovation and sustainability which responds to the anticipated lifestyle and health needs of a future community and is capable of accommodating changing housing needs over a lifetime.
"The judges were all extremely impressed by all three shortlisted entries. In the end, the clarity of White's landscape-led approach emerged as a clear winner. The scheme, which builds on a Scandinavian model of family apartments and flexible tenancies, provides all households with views and access to a range of imaginatively landscaped private and shared garden spaces, within a simple and robust urban footprint."
