Graven Hill, the UK’s largest self-build site, has launched a competition to win a house design by renowned architectural designer and TV personality Charlie Luxton.
Open to anyone wanting to build at their Bicester, Oxfordshire location, the prize includes the chance the work with the designer to create a bespoke concept for a home at Graven Hill.
The winner will have two different designs drawn up, each informed by their brief. Once they have decided on a concept, they will be free to commission a supplier of their choice, or contract Charlie’s team to develop technical drawings.
To enter, head to the Graven Hill website and in 500 or fewer words, describe your dream home and how it will change your life.
The competition closes on the 29th May 2018 and the winner will be announced at the Build It Live Bicester show on Saturday 9th June. All shortlisted entrants will be invited.
Luxton is known for hosting shows such as The Great Treehouse Challenge and Building the Dream. He also runs architecture firm Charlie Luxton Design, which specialises in sustainable structures.
The Graven Hill development offers self-build plots alongside a community ethos. The site has planning permission for up to 1,900 homes, with 30% of these allocated as affordable housing.
