The Home of 2030 competition has encouraged the housing industry’s best and brightest talents to design environmentally friendly homes that support people in leading independent, fulfilling lives as our society ages.
A winner will be chosen. Together with other selected finalists, Homes England’s development partners will be introduced to explore the possibility of developing bids for a series of homes on Homes England land.
The six finalists have each received £40,000 of funding to help them create detailed plans.
“The winner of this competition will set the standard for the homes of the future and all six finalists have already made an exciting contribution to the designs we will need in the UK and around the world.”
“This competition demonstrates the best of British design being brought to bear on a key issue for today, and future generations: delivering homes that are good for the planet and that promote healthy, independent living for older generations,” said Pincher.
In an observation issued on Sunday and the federal government’s announcement, Alan Jones, president of the Royal Institute of British Architects, stated that the U.K urgently wanted “a broad mix of affordable, age-friendly and sustainable housing – and these shortlisted proposals provide exactly that.”
“Through the clever configuration of private and public space, natural light and ventilation, intelligent use of materials and technologies, these cost-effective, low carbon homes show what’s possible when architects collaborate,” Jones added.
Back in July, U.K. Finance Minister Rishi Sunak unveiled plans for a £3 billion “green investment package” that can try to spice up the power potency of structures and lend a hand create jobs.
As part of his plans, Sunak introduced a £2 billion “green homes grant” that can permit landlords and house owners to use for vouchers to support their houses’ power potency.
