International ideas competition that asks entrants to explore the character of Cambridge by designing a house type for a new development on the edge of the City.

The character of Cambridge’s urban fabric has been influenced over time by the construction of a variety of private dwellings; medieval core, Georgian town houses, Victorian workers’ cottages through to pre/post war estates, 1960’s blocks and contemporary infill and fringe developments. Each area has its own character- which together with the places forwork, study, leisure and culture – contributes to the essence of the city.

Historically, the material language of Cambridge has been characterised by locally sourced Cambridge buff brick and creamy ooliticKetton limestone – with variations and additions to this basic palette resulting in a diverse richness of detail across the spectrum of buildings and streetscapes.

We are asking people who understand the essence of Cambridge to provide ideas forthe design of a single dwelling – focusing on the external character, detail, fabrication and materiality of the Wing Development. What should the essence of this new place be – and how will it be manifest in the fabric and articulation of the built environment?
