The Sunday Times/British Homes Awards 2013 international competition for a 'lifetime' developer home - shortlisted finalist

The Flex House is a highly adaptable home for life, taking into account families' changing occupancies and lifestyle requirements over time, while maintaining a close physical connection between the interiors and the outdoor natural environment. It offers a high level of sustainability, minimising energy, resource use and utility bills, during the entire life of the house.

The first phase is a flexible 4/5 bed 3-storey family home arranged around an enclosed, private courtyard with garden terraces on all levels and an integrated garage/store. Indoor/outdoor living is encouraged by large sliding/folding doors, fully integrating the living spaces with gardens. At a later date, if required, the house can flex into two autonomous homes; a fully accessible barrier-free 1-bed ground floor courtyard flat, with a 2/3 bed duplex family home over with the option of separate entrances.
