Rt Hon Christopher Pincher MP, Minister of State for Housing, has today awarded +Home as the winner of the Home of 2030 competition.

Launched in March 2020, and managed by the RIBA, the Home of 2030 competition encouraged the design of environmentally friendly homes that support people in leading independent, fulfilling lives as our society ages.

The +Home scheme, a collaboration between igloo Regeneration with Mawson Kerr, Cast, Landsmith Associates, Elliott Wood, Expedition Engineering, Thomas.Matthews, and Useful Simple Trust, 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.

Working with Sunderland City Council, plans are now in place to build +Home at the month-long Future Living Expo in Sunderland in 2023. The project will be built in its entirety, along with the other five finalists’ entries, so visitors will have the unique opportunity to touch, feel, and experience first-hand the winning vision for the future of housing.
