The Metro -“Most innovative shortlist by Clear Architects”

The Metro -“Most innovative shortlist by Clear Architects”

Clear Architects were praised the press this week for our “radical” coffee cup starter home concept in the “Self Build on a Shoestring” competition, at Grand Designs Live.

“Build a home for less than £50,000”, written by The Metro’s Gordon Miller, commended our innovative start-home concept.

The pre-fabricated modular kit home incorporates used shredded coffee cups for insulation between timber frames, plus stacked coffee cups wrapped in waterproof membrane for rainwater pipes.

The design also proposed a living green roof, solar heated water system and flame retardant walls and flooring. It would cost around £40,000 to build.
