Home of 2030
7 December 2020
Teaming up with Outpost Architects, we were amongst the six finalists of Home of 2030, a housing design competition.
Our design proposals responded to these challenges by seeking to cultivate a new relationship with nature by learning from the past and looking to the future. The idea that we should use less and build with ‘natural,’ recyclable and non-toxic materials is nothing new. Timber, straw, clay, cob, lime, and stone (to name a few) are all readily available local materials that make up our traditional pre-petroleum architectural vernacular. Max Fordham's embodied carbon analysis showed that these can form an ultra low carbon home.
