RIBA competition winners announced

The winners of our prestigious competition in partnership with the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) to design affordable homes which encourage young people to settle in the area were announced earlier in the summer.

McMullan Studios and Outpost both took their inspiration from the longhouses and farmsteads of the past in their designs which impressed the judges.

McMullan’s entry – the Flexstead – was the winner for the Craven District Council-owned Horton-in-Ribblesdale site. Outpost, who proposed a series of longhouses in a modern interpretation of the Cumbrian vernacular of the past, designed the successful entry for the Burneside site.

The landowners are now working with the successful architects to further develop the ideas, which will be subject to the usual planning process before any building work can take place.
