Our second showcase of the work submitted for the Home of 2030 Young Persons’ Challenge comes from a team of three students from Nottingham Girls’ Academy.
Congratulations to Kyra-Marie Winfield, Harmanjeet Kaur and Amelia-Iris Woodward for making the shortlist in the 14-16 years age group. Their submission focused on safe, communal and sustainable homes for every family – Chainlink Communities.
The team’s idea: Each home is made out of fully recycled products. This material, also being extremely light, is perfect for manufacturing in factories and can be transported to site with no issue. Our interiors can be altered to suit the needs of each individual family, including the building itself. Walls within the building can be moved freely by hand and locked into place, creating open plan areas, solid walls or even partial separation between rooms. By planting trees in carefully chosen places light can be preserved to each house whilst providing enough privacy so houses are not looking into each other’s windows. Our houses are modular. Each section optional dependent on family size and situations. Why should every home be exactly the same when every family is different?
