Home of 2030 is the design competition created to drive innovation in the provision of affordable, efficient and healthy green homes for all.
We need to increase the supply of new homes, ensuring resources are used efficiently and we build them to last. They need to provide healthy, safe and attractive places to live, that benefit people and communities.
It is a big challenge. Home of 2030 aims to inspire and reward the ambition of housing providers, designers, the supply chain and others helping to meet the big challenge of future housing needs. It is a cross-government initiative that will feed into the development of government policy, breaking down barriers that impede innovation and delivery. Home of 2030 will help develop widely applicable commercial solutions that make our homes better, and help develop low carbon technology so our homes can play their part in combating climate change.
Home of 2030 is a cross-departmental initiative funded by HM Government

Making new homes desirable to all demographics is key to the Home of 2030 challenge. We need to ensure homes can adapt to changing needs, for example for the benefit of an ageing society and to positively impact people’s lives and our communities.

Home is the most important piece of architecture in our lives. It crafts the way we live, and how we grow as families and communities. A well-designed home can enhance the way we live and promote good health and wellbeing.
Christopher Pincher MP, Housing Minister
This competition will harness all that technology has to offer to bring in a housing revolution: new low carbon homes that deliver low energy bills and independent living for older generations.
Heather Scotcher, Centre for Ageing Better
We need to be building well-designed homes, places and communities that encourage social connections, and offer good accessibility to green spaces, public transport and other services to support better health, wellbeing and independence for residents at all stages of life.
