Highgate Cemetery is looking for an architect-led team to consider how to conserve historic structures and improve facilities at the Cemetery. The competition is open to architects registered with the Architects Registration Board in the UK or the equivalent in their home country. The successful team will be talented enough to produce exceptional quality of design and respectful enough for this to sit happily within the Grade 1 registered landscape and adjacent to the many listed structures.

In Stage 1 entrants will complete a four-part Standard Selection Questionnaire, including explanations of how they will approach the project, similar projects they have successfully delivered in the past, and details of their team. Following completion of Stage 1 it is intended that a maximum of six teams will be shortlisted to compete in Stage 2 of the competition.

The Stage 2 assessment process and criteria will be provided in the Stage 2 briefing documents. The evaluation criteria will be a split between quality and price.
