Bathing vision for 20 years’ time
Teaming up with the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA), Ideal Standard has launched a competition for architects and designers to design a bathroom of the future and win £5,000.
The competition is focused upon what future residential bathrooms may look like in 20 years, with designers required to address trends, lifestyle issues, sustainability and demographics.
Rather than elaborate futuristic visions, the search will be on for everyday bathrooms with practical and realistic designs “within the functional and economic grasp of a future generation”.
Based upon a space of 6sqm, the bathroom should include WC, basin and washing, bathing and showering.
Each entry must include a dimensioned plan with illustrations of how the bathroom would look, feel and perform within the home, along with 800 words on the reasoning behind the ideas.
Submissions should be sent as PDFs no later than January 31, 2017.
