The winners of the Home of 2030 competition have been announced.
Launched in March 2020, and managed by the RIBA, the competition encourages the design of environmentally friendly homes that support people in leading independent, fulfilling lives as our society ages.
+Home designed by igloo Regeneration with Useful Projects, Expedition Engineers and Mawson Kerr and Connector Housing designed by Openstudio with Hoare Lea, LDA Design and Gardiner & Theobald the joint winners of the competition.
The +Home scheme proposes community-led self-build homes that people can design themselves. Simple to build with affordable frames and components, the homes would be climate friendly and recyclable at the end of their use.
Connector Housing is a flexible and adaptable system for age-friendly, multi-generational housing and neighbourhoods. It proposes varying densities of houses and apartments, with a variety of site configurations, vertical heights, external appearances and internal layouts that can be adapted to respond to changing occupant needs.
The winners and other shortlisted teams will now be invited to meet Homes England’s development partners to discuss their ideas further.
