On July 14 2022 Goram Homes, Bristol Housing Festival and Redcliffe Neighbourhood Forum announced Groupwork, McGregor Coxall and Hydrock as the winners of the Redcliffe Way Design Competition.

Goram Homes worked hand in hand with Redcliffe Neighbourhood forum to ensure that the winning design responded to the historical and cultural heritage of the site.

The judging panel supported the winning design unanimously and were impressed by its innovative approach to architectural design and sensitivity to local community needs.

Melissa Mean, Redcliffe Neighbourhood Forum said:

“Re-claiming Redcliffe Way for homes, nature, and community infrastructure has long been the ambition of the Redcliffe community. The winning design is a really exciting and thoughtful response to this challenge. We look forward to working with the team on what will be an important first step in creating a new heart for our neighbourhood.” 

Canon Dan Tyndall, Vicar of St Mary Redcliffe said:

“The proposed design is really distinctive, creating essential links between north and south Redcliffe and from Temple Meads to Bristol’s South Bank. It relates well with the architecture of St Mary Redcliffe and furthers our community’s vision to see the regeneration of Redcliffe Way.” 

Stage 2 of the competition involved a stakeholder engagement workshop with local stakeholders including Building with Nature, Bristol Civic Society and Redcliffe and Temple BID and others. The scheme received support for its attention to zero carbon and consideration of the wider context and sensitivity to the local area.

McGregor Coxall said:

‘We are thrilled to be part of the winning team for this exciting competition working alongside two socially and environmentally focussed companies in Groupwork and Hydrock. Our vision reimagined Redcliffe Way as Redcliffe Park – transforming it into an iconic parkland, sensitively intertwined with the fabric of Redcliffe and the wider city.’

“This competition is a fantastic example of how developers can work hand in hand with the community to design new homes and spaces with the neighbourhood’s needs front and centre. I am excited to see how the development progresses and seeing Redcliffe Neighbourhood Forums’ vision for the space, realised.”

Goram Homes will now appoint the team to RIBA Stage 2 and prepare the pre-application process. They will also co-design a community engagement strategy with Redcliffe Neighbourhood Forum.

Cllr Tom Renhard, a member of the judging panel and Cabinet member for Housing Delivery and Homes said:

“This competition is a fantastic example of how developers can work hand in hand with the community to design new homes and spaces with the neighbourhood’s needs front and centre. I am excited to see how the development progresses and seeing Redcliffe Neighbourhood Forums’ vision for the space, realised.”
