Description
Freegreen.com is challenging you to help us define the design concept of Affordable Luxury. Gone are the days of free-flowing mortgages, and multi-million dollar McMansions. In this “new normal” home owners still desire livable, ascetically pleasing, and luxurious homes, but now need these same concepts implemented into smaller more affordable residential structures. This creates the perfect opportunity for the design community to take charge of this challenge and be the first to create new home designs, and design delivery methods, that meet today’s restraints and requirements.
By entering Who’s Next 2.0 you will be challenged to think about delivering and marketing your design skills in new ways. These new challenges will be hard, but they have been designed to help you increase revenue, diversify your practice, and help provide better design to the residential market place.
