Better Buildings - Design a Low Carbon Building Banner


Award-winning Architects + Masterplanners Stephen George + Partners (SGP) have put together this fun little competition to keep children entertained.

The competition is open to age groups:

9 and under

10 to 15

We invite you to design a building using sustainable materials.

We ask you to be as creative as you like and think about what materials you could use to make the space more energy efficient?

Would the building be designed for a school, family or favourite celebrity?  Would it be built  on a hillside, include glass doors and roof window to help make it light inside?

It’s easy to take part, simply create your design and share on Twitter or Instagram using the hashtag #SGPbetterbuildings at @sgpllp or Facebook at Stephen George and Partners. Alternatively, email betterbuildings@stephengeorge.co.uk
