Regulation nation: will the government’s review help cure the housing crisis?
Taylor Wimpey looking for homes of future
Six architects have been shortlisted to come up with ideas for homes of the future for house builder Taylor Wimpey
The £3.1 billion turnover firm built more than 13,000 homes last year making it the second biggest house builder in the country.
It has teamed up with the RIBA to get architects to draw up plans for new homes that include changing trends as well as innovations in design, architecture, technology, materials and methodology.
More than 100 firms submitted entries for the competition, known as Project 2020, with the shortlisted six due to present their proposals in September.
RIBA advisor Glenn Howells said: “The standard was very high and stimulated much debate. Each [shortlisted design] stretched the concept of what the house could be and how it could best relate to changing technologies and patterns of living.”
