UK dominates Homes Awards shortlist
Five British designs have been among six shortlisted for the smart home of the future award.
The competition, which is part of the Sunday Times British Homes Awards, received more than 200 entries before being whittled down to a final six, with the public voting for the winner.
Among the shortlisted submissions was a modular construction from the Cardiff-based Pentan Partnership, which it says can be constructed for under £100,000.
Meadowcroft Griffin Architects led the London entries with the Flexi Home, which is built around a double-height light void and includes floor-to-ceiling windows.
North London-based More Design submitted Our House, an upside-down configuration featuring a bedroom next to a carport with a living room, kitchen and garden on the second floor.
Deverell-Jenkins completed the London trio with the Stormal House, which features a glazed staircase that generates electricity every time it is walked on.
Architect 8, of Surrey, designed the Responsive House, which can be warmed through south-facing windows while Swedish firm White Arkitekter entered the Street Smart House that can be controlled at the touch of a button.
