Six ambitious projects selected for the Social Housing Award shortlist 

The Inaugural WAN Social Housing Award 2017 is a major international competition reflecting the growing importance of this sector in most cities and urban areas. An increasing population means a greater need for elegant, yet cost effective solutions for high-density housing. This award celebrates the innovation being applied to social and affordable housing projects and highlights the importance of good architecture and design.

Selected for their expertise within this sector, the jury panel who chose the final shortlist were: Jo McCafferty, Director at Levitt Bernstein, Seth Rutt Senior Partner at HawkinsBrown, Ollie Spragley, Planning and Design Manager at The Collective and Jean-Christophe Masson, Co-founder at Hamonic+Masson & Associés.

Shortlist listed in no particular order:

EMPOWER, in Cape Town, South Africa by U-TT, ETHZ

“It is positive to see a nuanced, intellectual approach being brought to housing with a real social mission, with affordable construction. The macro to micro approach is applauded, as is the analysis in relation to phasing and minimised displacement of the existing residents.” Seth Rutt

“Grassroots, low cost prototype for development of informal settlement sites. Strong social agenda and engagement processes, alongside intelligent analysis of financial support for development, and a spectrum of 'fit out' to enable quick, immediate, build and development as a household grows.” Jo McCafferty

Rosenhøj Transformation, in Aarhus, Denmark by EFFEKT Architects, Arkitema Architects

“Good design work in both the new buildings and the refurbishment to provide good quality social housing.” Ollie Spragley

“Radical refurbishment project taking 1960’s tired, estate buildings to new forms of residential development – smaller communities, better connected and with individual architectural character. External re-clad with new entrances is sophisticated, well executed and an elegant design solution.” Jo McCafferty

One More Room in Morelos, Mexico by ADG

“Human preoccupation is present in this project. The addition of a new form creates a new space within the home, with much more air and light. The specific architectural tools maximize quality of life and have a strong impact, with new urban form with a distinct force. A simple solution with a strong effect.” Jean-Christophe Masson

“It is positive to see a low-cost, affordable proposal that brings dignity to humble materials.” Seth Rutt

“Clever, simple, cheap, thoughtful and a good use of space - a sensitive response to the specific problem of dense, substandard low quality housing in Morelos, Mexico.” Jo McCafferty

608 Franklin Avenue, in Brooklyn, United States by ODA New York

“Great to see a social housing development that is designed to such a high level.” Ollie Spragley

“The shared amenity space looks fun- it would be interesting to see more about how the social programme and 'software' of the building works.” Seth Rutt

"Industrial context well represented in a new construction. There is an aspect of luxury within simplicity. The idea of rationality and generosity create a happy medium. This allows a Sharing ideas and sharing spaces, but with a good, coherent program. Very strong form, a generous project that offers light everywhere." Jean-Christophe Masson

Social Residence LORRAINE / 173 Housings Paris | France, in PARIS, France by PERIPHERIQUES ARCHITECTS

“This sort of dense local context creates a complicated exercise for the architect. These areas present a complexity of urban rules in a very specific urban tissue. The materials and the game effect of the windows create a specific identity and dynamism within a monolithic urban form. To conclude, the idea of density is in the core of the project, which allows the creation of a sense of community inside the building.” Jean-Christophe Masson

“The creative re-use of an existing building is positive, and the scheme appears to have real personality via the facade and the bold graphic approach to the common interior spaces using simple materials and colour.” Seth Rutt

Wind Tower, in Salmiya, Kuwait by AGi architects Spain SL

“It's really interesting to see a contemporary approaches to high rise housing in the Middle East that allows interaction with the outdoors, using an ancient ventilation tower technique. One hopes that in cooler months, this will promote interaction between neighbours as the photographs suggest.” Seth Rutt

“Interesting section, inventive, naturally ventilated central circulation, access on the southern side, large family duplexes. Interesting planning on each floor.” Jo McCafferty

“Beautifully and very cleverly designed in a way that reduces energy consumption and increases airflow.” Ollie Spragley

WAN AWARDS would like to thank the jury and congratulate all six finalists in the WAN Social Housing Award 2017.

The winner of this category will be announced on the 28th February 2018 at our prestigious WAN AWARDS 2017 Event.
