HILTON DESIGN COMPETITION

Project Team: David Barr, Stephen Hicks
Client: The Department of Communities (Housing) 

David Barr Architects were shortlisted to the top 4. 

"The competition attracted 79 entries from both emerging and established architectural practices. The jury was overwhelmed by the number of entries and impressed with the variety of the design approaches and the consistently high quality of the submissions. It genuinely made the process of shortlisting only four entries extremely difficult, but based on the creativity and innovation of the submissions the future of public housing in Hilton will be very impressive."
