“It gives me great pleasure to launch the design brief for ‘Homes for Britain’ – the 2015 Sunday Times British Homes Awards. The competition has a long track record of producing cutting-edge designs of real excellence and innovation across a broad range of categories. This year’s competition, which challenges architects and designers to produce a standard house type suitable for Garden City type developments, with a focus on innovative designs which are both buildable and replicable, promises to continue in that vein.

The Rt. Hon. Brandon Lewis MP Housing Minister

Brandon-Lewis-speechThe Sunday Times British Homes Awards 2015 in partnership with H+H UK Ltd, BRE, Redrow Homes and the AJ invited submissions for a single stage open design competition for visionary designs for a standard house type suitable for planned Garden City developments constructed with H+H UK’s aircrete building materials.  Architects were encouraged to embrace innovative products and concepts whilst ensuring their submission is buildable and replicable and compliant with current building regulations and to conform to NHBC/Premier Guarantee standards.
