We were pleased to see the Snug House got published in this weeks Architects Journal. Our design was shortlisted in the Sunday Times Britain’s Future Home competition and featured alongside the winning scheme by Dwelle and the other shortlisted entries. Our proposal was somewhat humbler and we believe, more deliverable, than most entires and was intended to make carbon neutral housing genuinely accessible to the mass housing market. The design reinvents the classic 1930’s semi achieving 17.5% more floor area in a smaller volume and critically a third double bedroom replaces the infamous box room. The house has been sized and detailed to be inherently flexible, easily changing from a generous 3 bed into a 4 bed student house and, through the addition of a ‘room on the roof pod’, into a 5 bedroom house. The ubiquitous semi is finally a house for life and fit for the 21st century.
