Design Challenge: Expressions of interest are invited from architectural practices based in the UK to design a mixed use development to reinvigorate a prominent site in Maidenhead Town Centre.  The client is seeking to appoint an architectural practice that can bring imaginative thinking to build upon a high level strategic master plan, developed in conjunction with the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead, and to produce a high quality, affordable scheme that sits comfortably within its context.
