And the Winners are…

We are delighted to announce the winners of our Building Becontree 2121 competition. We received lots of fantastic and creative designs when we asked young people to design the ultimate cutting-edge house for 100 years in the future. Thank you to everyone who entered, our special guest judge Bill Jennings, former LBBD housing manager and Becontree historian, had a great time looking through all of the imaginative designs.
Special thanks to the Valence Volunteers who have kindly sponsored the prizes for this competition. The winners in each category will be receiving £50 of Amazon vouchers and everyone who entered the competition will receive a special Becontree mug.

Congratulations to Sophie (age 6) our winner in the 6 and under category.
We love how Sophie has tackled the issue of limited space for new houses, by building upwards, instead of outwards, to create a colourful multi-story townhouse. With super fun slides to move around the different floors and an outdoor hoop for fun and games, this family home is tip-top!

Congratulations to Scarlett (age 7) our winner in the 7-11 category.
We were blown away with how Scarlett’s “Eco” house embraced so many different elements, from solar and lunar panels, to the water collector, windmill and lightning catcher. With a parking space for your flying car and jet packs to move your house should you fancy a change of scenery, this house is out of this world!

Congratulations to Andreia (age 12) our winner in the 12-16 category.
We were very impressed with how Andreia has embraced a futuristic sleek modern design with lots of geometric shapes. Light and airy with its vast expanse of windows, and large roof terrace this is a cool pad for those cool kids of the future!
