Design contest opens for Scandinavian prefabricated homes

  • Comment

An international design competition has been launched for new prefabricated housing in Norway and Estonia

The contest – backed by online market place katus.eu and house builders Nurban and Kodumaja – seeks proposals for ‘progressive and contemporary’ houses which can be built quickly and cheaply.

The homes – which can be arranged either in apartment blocks or terraces – are planned for sites in Stavanger (pictured), Norway and Ülenurme, Estonia.

Tiit Sild, chief executive of katus.eu said: ‘With the help of internationally renowned architects from all over Europe we hope to gather progressive ideas in building with wood and achieve buildings that are contemporary and of high quality, yet low cost and easy
and cheap to assemble.’  

The winners – set to be announced in February – will share a £15,000 prize fund. Their designs are expected to be manufactured by Estonian developers and marketed in Estonia and Norway.

The deadline for entries is 26 January.
