Avanti Architects scoops British Homes Award

Avanti Architects saw off the likes of AEW Architects, SMAL, Grafik Architects and HTA Architects to win this year’s Mail on Sunday British Homes Award.

The project – officially entitled Tomorrow’s Lifestyle Home and designed to a minimum level 4 in the Code Sustainable Homes standard – will be built by developer Crest Nicholson ‘in the UK next year.’

The practice, which was one of 10 shortlisted (AJ 08.05.08), landed a cheque for £5,000.

Describing the scheme, a spokesman for the firm said: ‘At the heart of the house an open lightwell acts as a “lung” distributing air, light and energy into the interior.

‘[It has] adaptable spaces for successive generations as their needs change and is fully adaptable with access for people with disabilities.’
