In September 2014 Hill launched a competition to find Cambridge’s family of the future; a family to live in our Virido Concept House for a year.
We received many fantastic entries; one family even wrote a poem about what it would mean to win the competition. After initial telephone interviews with all the families, a shortlist was drawn up and four families were interviewed by our panel of judges, with one family standing out.
Our winning family is home-centric with two young, energetic children and a baby on the way; the house will be used very well and no doubt tested thoroughly.
Our winning family already has some knowledge of sustainability; however they have a desire to change their habits and to gain a greater understanding of sustainable living and to lead a greener life so living at the Virido Concept House is a perfect opportunity for them.
