Will the homes of the future look like this?
The homes of the future. Ever wondered what they might look like? We have. And over the weekend we were given a glimpse of the kinds of houses we may find ourselves living in by 2030, as the finalists of the Home of 2030 competition were announced by the Housing Minister Christopher Pincher.
The 6 finalists and their designs are:
The Home of 2030 competition was launched in March to encourage the design of environmentally friendly homes that will meet the needs of people as they age so they can continue to lead independent, fulfilling lives.? It is part of a government drive to improve the standard of housing in the UK and sits alongside the planning reforms we blogged about yesterday.
A winner will be chosen this autumn and together with other selected finalists, they will be introduced to Homes England development partners 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 develop detailed plans. The ultimate aim is to make tree-lined streets the norm and to ?beautify? housing developments as well as building new ?zero carbon ready? homes that will not require any future retrofitting. It?s a big ambition. We have ten years to wait and see if this competition will help to fulfil it.
