ReSpace Design Competition!

There are still a few more days to register for The ReSpace Design Competition! Our friends from the Habitat for Humanity of Wake County ReStore, along with the American Institute of Architects Triangle Section and the Raleigh Chapter of Architecture for Humanity, conceived of the competition as a creative way to raise awareness of reuse materials while showcasing creative and successful small space designs inspired by their use.

To enter, participants must register online by 6/15 and then submit a design for a small, unique and transportable structure with reuse materials at the core, from concept to construction by 8/15. The grand prize winner will receive $1,000 and have the opportunity to see their design come to life! The winning design will be constructed in a 48 hour build overseen by Habitat for Humanity Wake County using materials from their Raleigh ReStore. A grand total of $3,000 in awards will be presented to multiple winners and the final ReSpace structure will be sold and all proceeds will help Habitat for Humanity of Wake County to build more affordable homes for hardworking, low-income families and individuals.

Register online, before June 15, to support design, reuse and affordable housing in a fun and creative way!
