+Home and Connector Housing are joint winners

Speaking at the HOMES UK conference, Minister of State for Housing Rt Hon Christopher Pincher MP said:

The Home of 2030 competition was born out of this Government’s ambition to meet the grand challenges of our time: helping our country adapt to an ageing society, whilst fighting climate change and boldly pursuing our 2050 net zero commitments. Two entries really captured the judges’ imaginations — their designs show the way housing in this country can be reimagined and for that I would like to sincerely congratulate both winners of these worthy awards.  


Igloo Regeneration

with Useful Projects, Mawson Kerr Architects, Cast, Elliot Wood, Expedition and Landsmith Associates


Their scheme proposes community-led and self-build homes that people can design themselves. Simple to build with affordable frames and components, the homes are climate friendly to build and can be recycled at the end of their lives.


Openstudio Architects

with Gardiner & Theobald and Hoare Lea

Connector Housing

Their proposal is a flexible and adaptable architectural and landscape system for age-friendly, multi-generational housing and neighbourhoods. It has flexibility to add additional floors as required.
