The Starter Home Design Competition was organised by
the Department of Building and Housing to encourage
architects, designers, and those in the building
industry to come up with designs and solutions for
good quality, affordable and energy efficient homes
that show what can be done with limited resources.
With a trend to building larger homes compounding the
increasing cost of houses, the competition promoted the
use of clever design to create smaller-sized homes that
offer quality, affordable options.
Frans Kamermans' submission was one of
ten finalists selected from 140 entries.
Frans Kamermans' clever modular plan and stylish
and contemporary exterior will appeal to many people.
The plan will adapt to many sites in orientation and
layout and can grow as needs arise.
