Youngsters in Rugby invited to become ‘Archi-tot of the future’

Rugby Editorial 8th May, 2024   0

YOUNGSTERS in Rugby are being invited to become an ‘Archi-tot of the future’.

Housebuilder Redrow Midlands is calling on kids aged four to 16 in the town to design a house suitable for 2074 as part of its 50th birthday celebrations.

From wallpaper that changes depending on your mood, to a fridge that restocks automatically or a bathroom that cleans itself, the design must suit the needs of an ultra-modern family life, while being energy efficient and built sustainably.

As well as a prize of £100, the winning Archi-tot’s school or college will also receive £150 in artwork vouchers.

The Midlands winner will join other successful Archi-tots chosen by other Redrow regions across the UK, with one overall winner to be announced later this year.

The winner will also see their design planted in a time capsule in the ground at their nearest Redrow development – at Houlton Way, if a Rugby entrant is chosen.

Redrow Midlands Sales Director Elaine Cartwright said: “We’re looking to the future by calling on Rugby’s most creative young talent to imagine what a home will look like in 2074. From convertible roofs for hot summer nights, to self-tinting windows and robot gardeners, we’re looking for the most adventurous and ambitious designs.

“What better way to celebrate the creative talent of local youngsters and showcase the wonderful imagination and creative abilities of the next generation?”

Visit before midnight on Friday May 17 to enter.
