Young South African Architects were invited to design a conceptual draft of a timber structure home for a South African family with three kids. No restrictions as to the
size of the plot or budget and it is purely at the discretion of the author what is seen as requirements of the family members.
The objective of the Competition is to broaden a general interest in modern sustainable construction and offer young architects an opportunity to explore amiable
housing design with environmentally friendly impact of the future. At the same time the Competition should open innovative construction concepts to the South African
public, namely young families.
The Competition is sponsored by the Wood Student Foundation, (in cooperation with the Hout Bay House research project members) and HWZ International South Africa. This provides the Competition participants direct access to innovative sustainable building materials & concepts, e.g. cross laminated timber (CLT).
