THE HOME FOR ALL SEASONS
Winner of the 2016 Sunday Times & British Homes Awards 'Resilient Home' Design Competition. The Home for All Seasons is a model for a new type of housing that is future-proof to flooding, overheating and extreme cold. Its design provides protection, comfort and independence to residents through an approach of resilience, resilience, rather than resistance. It works inline with the principles of good place-making and rather than seeing 'resilience' as a compromise uses it as a feature to enhance the way in which residents live in and enjoy their homes. As a result those living in the 'Home for All Seasons' have peace of mind in the knowledge that their home can be quickly and easily be adjusted to cope with the wide range of challenges the future holds. A prototype of the scheme is being developed in collaboration with the BRE.
