BM3 Housing 19 Design Competition

BM3 initiated an internal design competition for all of its staff, which would explore the day to day impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on our homes.

The purpose of the competition was to provide ideas for how new housing and master planning could be designed to help people cope better with similar situations and related issues such as lockdown, food shortages, health and wellbeing, home working and cohabiting with extended families. 12 teams entered the competition, including groups made up of staff from both studios.

The judges were Rebecca Smith, of the RIBA, together with two of BM3’s Directors, John Jones and James Boulter.

The winning design focused on giving occupants a variety of amenity spaces that sat alongside the main rear garden. The design also includes a garden, outhouse/quarantine space, and a play area/office. Congratulations to the winning team: BM3’s Jay Rajpra, HoLim Yung, Tasos Siakotos.

A huge well done to all involved and a very special thank you to our guest judge!
