This year’s show will present one of the largest show houses ever featured! The ultimate in adaptable living, this innovative home is based on a flexible modular construction system that can be tailored to create many different layouts. The Evolving Home itself can be extended easily and quickly to create an even larger, or differently configured, home as the owners’ lifestyles change. Visitors to the show can take away ideas from different sections of the house to use in their existing properties, from adding extra space with a modular extension to letting in light with smart windows and open-plan layouts.
Tailored to different lifestyles
Every room in the home is bright and spacious, but each will be styled completely differently to showcase how this versatile space can work for many different tastes and lifestyles. For instance, this large three-bedroom house will also incorporate an additional living space for a ‘boomerang’ generation child; totally separate from the house, it allows multi-generational living in a shared space whilst still providing privacy and seclusion.
The Show Village will feature different garden spaces around the house including a contemporary Smart garden; roof garden, as well as an alfresco dining area.
Meet the designers - Owl Design
Owl Design is an interior design company established in early 2012 by Simone Gordon and Sophie van Winden. Their interiors delivered creative, yet accessible designs, showcasing trend-transforming looks with a harmonious balance between function and aesthetics and a distinctive personality.
The show home this year is the biggest yet and explores flexible modular living. Each room in the home is bright and spacious, but we have styled each room completely differently to showcase how this versatile space can work for many different tastes and lifestyles. For example, the Annex provides additional living space for a ‘boomerang’ generation child and is totally separate from the house. We have designed this space to reflect the tastes of a young man and chosen a moody masculine materials and colour palette. On the other hand the master bedroom reflects the eclectic tastes of his parents who love art and pops of colour on a natural background. The home allows multi-generational living in a shared space whilst still providing privacy and seclusion.
