Housebuilders:

Why is it that the housebuilders in this country provide such a poor product? Small wonder that self-build is gaining in popularity when we are faced with the poorly constructed anonymous 'tudorbethan' efforts which many housebuilders offer. However there is much to be optimistic about -do have a look at the Housing Design Award winners to see what is possible when aspirational clients get together with good architects to provide elegant modern housing that meets the energy requirements of the 21st Century.

The old housing stock is leaving this country with an unaccaptable legacy of high maintenance, energy guzzling, outmoded housing stock that is long overdue for renewal. We need to accept the challenge of providing appropriate and sustainable mass housing that currently is a rarity in Britain, but is being provided by the likes of Urban Splash and Bioregional.
