Archi-tot needed for housebuilder’s 50th anniversary

A Lancashire housebuilder is recruiting for an ‘Archi-tot’ as part of its 50th birthday celebrations.

Redrow is calling on youngsters across Lancashire to design a house suitable for 2074 – fifty years from now.

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

Four-to sixteen-year-olds from across the region can apply for the role by emailing a ‘house of the future’ design to [email protected]. Entry forms are available on request.

As well as a prize of £150, the winning Archi-tot’s school or college will also receive £300.  The winner will also see their design planted in a time capsule in the ground at one of their nearby Redrow developments, ready to be unearthed fifty years from now.

Imaginative youngsters across the region have until midnight on May 17 to submit their entries and be in with a chance of being named Redrow Lancashire’s  Archi-tot of the future.

The 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.

Steve Jackson, sales director at Redrow Lancashire said: “In our 50th year of housebuilding, we’re looking to the future by calling on most creative young talent to imagine what a home will look like in 2074. From convertible roofs for those hot summer nights, to self-tinting windows and robot gardeners who mow the lawn, we’re looking for the most adventurous and ambitious designs.

“Here at Redrow Lancashire, we’re committed to bringing young people into the construction sector and are recognised by the industry for our training excellence and apprenticeship programme.

“What better way to celebrate the creative talent of local youngsters and showcase the wonderful imagination and creative abilities of the next generation? Who knows, we could even put in a good word for the winner to become one of our new apprentices where they might find themselves building their design in years to come!”
