Open Call

We are looking for a design that allows for a fully functional Cricket Pavilion and suggests a second income generating use for off-season (October – April).

It is an opportunity to create a contemporary and multi-functional building, with the ability to garner far wider usage and appreciation within the village and further afield.

The project is advocating a multi-functional construction, which could double as a contemporary holiday let, bakery, or some other amenity otherwise absent in the village, outside of the cricket season, with the aim of encouraging greater involvement within the various village groups, showing an alternative model for how villages can be designed. One of the crucial points of the project is to bring greater involvement, integration and use of the amazing grounds within the village, as well as securing the financial future of the clubs.

Anyone is invited to submit a proposal.
The competition is advertised locally, nationally and internationally.
We welcome proposals from a wide range of backgrounds, be it individuals or groups. From designers, community workers and activists, architects, ecologists, economists etc.

Submissions need to demonstrate how the proposal work spatially, conceptually and financially.

All submissions will be exhibited for the public at Coniston Institute.

Please send proposed designs on two A3 boards, plus any additional supporting material to:

“Coniston Cricket Pavilion”
Coniston Institute
Yewdale Road
LA21 8DU

The deadline for submissions is 5.00pm Monday 10 June 2013

All the designs will be exhibited in the Coniston Institute between 21 and 30 June as part of Love Architecture week.

From the submission, three designers will be selected and invited to develop second stage designs with a stipend of £1000 and up to five nights accommodation at Lawson Park, from this stage a design team will be selected for the project.
