Vote for Emrys’ Garden Villa In Sunday Times Housing Competition


Emrys have been shortlisted for the SundayTimes British Homes Award competition to design high density housing for a new garden city. Public voting decides the winner so please take the time to vote for our Garden Villa here: Update – voting is now complete.

Our Garden Villa is a light-filled dwelling in a densely populated garden city. Villas are arranged around communal garden squares creating safe areas for children to play and interaction between neighbours.

The living area is on the top floor with a garden on the roof and a terrace to the side to take advantage of the best light and views. This allows the ground floor to be very flexible with ample provision for storage, a garage and the option for a work studio, self-contained flat or fourth bedroom, and a winter garden adjoining the garden.

The villas can have a flat or pitched roof to create variety in the streetscape and the exterior can be rendered or clad to allow for the adoption of local materials.

We think our Garden Villa has a great balance between high density housing and generous communal areas – and it fits within the competition budget.
