The competition invited designers to speculate on new ideas for typologies and neighbourhood arrangements to cater for the private rented development, creating truly flexible homes and communities, and other benefits for those privately renting.

Mobile Studio's entry scheme entitled, 'PAYD Houses' (Pay As You Develop Houses), is a new design concept for modular, reconfigurable houses affording flexible accommodation for the long-term tenant. "Economic to build, flexible in design and sustainable across family generations PAYD offers something for everyone," says Mobile Studio.
