The Best Home Competition takes place once a year in cities around the world. It is a two stage Ideas and design-built Competition with the aim of identifying innovative proposals for new free standing Residential houses that will be built immediately. The competition is both a race that pushes the boundaries of the concept of house design and an opportunity of exposure.
The competition is open to anyone worldwide including designers, architects, landscape architects, artists, engineers and students and all professionals in areas related to architecture.

We invite you to create innovative solutions to tackle the challenges presented, with the winning designs demonstrating a high degree of expression and creativity in fulfilling new ideas for housing, addressing innovation, sustainability, efficiency, and aesthetic. The entire concept of the competition revolves around the selection among cutting edge, futuristic residential home designs that reflect and are adapted to modern days, those that includes elements of comfort, energy balance, aesthetic, practicability, and efficiency, all geared towards a futuristic concept of residential home building.

Projects are of many types; from townhouses, villas, cottages, cabins, courtyards, retirement villages, affordable homes, and specific development designs. It can be a standalone house or a real estate development for a community. These projects can be community driven with Sponsors seeking something unique and much like great architectural designs, when a specific arrangement has been made with a third party (Sponsor, the government, etc.) the competition short list selection will be commissioned to create a blue print for that particular project.
