Portuguese practice Impromptu Arquitectos and British partner Sergison Bates have won the Urban Splash and Muse Developments' Make Me a Home competition for the Northshore site in Stockton-on-Tees

Impromptu's decision to bring Sergison Bates on board was described by Urban Splash development manager Mark Latham as “a smart move”.

Impromptu partner Nuno Rosado said: “We're very proud to be part of the project. It's a very important development, and a fantastic site. Impromptu and Sergison Bates have a very similar understanding of how to tackle architectural problems.”

Latham praised Impromptu's imaginative approach, saying: “They're a fantastic team, with great design ideas. It was a combination of being a flexible typology - a uniform plot size that could be a two-, three-, four- or five-bedroom house, coupled with what Christophe Egret, one of the judges, described as a poetic approach to the masterplan.”

London's Tasou Architects were runners-up in the RIBA-organised competition, which was sponsored by BD, ahead of four other shortlisted practices: K2 Architects from Liverpool; Spine Architects of Hamburg, Germany; Bertolone Plazzogna Architects from Treviso, Italy; and Loates-Taylor Shannon Architects of London.

Newcastle's architecture centre, Northern Architecture, will exhibit all the entrants' designs in June as part of its North East Festival of Architecture.
