Having been joint winners in Home of 2030 competition, a HM Government backed initiative created to drive innovation in the provision of affordable, efficient and healthy green homes for all.
We were asked to develop the conceptual proposals to fit within the ambitious Vaux Housing development as part of the Riverside Sunderland masterplan.
The scheme is a condensed version and tessellates with the other joint winner Open Studio creating a dense cluster of homes around a courtyard which embodies all the important metrics behind the competition winning scheme. Our project is both low carbon in construction and during its lifespan in use, there is flexibility in the floor plate and crucial thoughts on how to connect inside and out while being an urban housing scheme.
