Microhome Kingspan Edition

The MICROHOME Kingspan Edition is an exciting development in the evolution of the MICROHOME architecture competition, marking the seventh edition of this event. This special edition is hosted by Buildner in a key partnership with Kingspan.

Brief:

The MICROHOME Kingspan Edition invites participants to conceptualize an off-grid modular dwelling that would accommodate a hypothetical young professional couple. This scenario serves as the benchmark family size for the competition. The total floor area of the structure should not exceed 25 m2, thereby encouraging participants to push their creativity and innovate within these parameters. 

The competition challenges participants to radically rethink spatial organization, to introduce distinctive aesthetics, and to implement state-of-the-art technologies and materials. The end objective is to propel the micro home from a mere architectural form to a revolutionary genre in its own right. There are no geographical restrictions on the hypothetical sites for these designs, allowing for unlimited creativity. Whether urban or rural, any location worldwide can be the backdrop for these micro homes.

Designs that prioritize sustainability and present solutions to economic, social, and cultural challenges through fresh architectural methods will receive preference.

Eligibility:

Competition is open to all. No professional qualification is required. Design proposals can be developed individually or by teams (4 team members maximum). Correspondence with organizers must be conducted in English; All information submitted by participants must be in English.
