The Landowner's Investment Association - Denmark with the collaboration of the open innovation platform innosite launches the contest Better Living.

The contest seeks to find solutions to improve the living conditions in existing buildings.

The Problem
At Grundejernes Investeringsfond (The Landowner's Investment Association) we are working to create better homes. We know that certain challenges exist with regard to the existing housing stock - partly in the physical condition of the housing and, partly, in the constraints on family life imposed by many older blocks of flats. We know, for example, that many people want to live in large towns and that several families with children choose to remain in their flats despite the lack of space and various facilities. It is necessary, therefore, that our housing stock can be made to accommodate changing requirements

Upload Your Idea. To take part in the competition, you must upload a picture of your idea accompanied by a brief description (max. 200 words) illustrating which kind of problems you seek to address. Additionally, you may upload a film or more pictures of your idea. Your idea need not be complete; it will be sufficient to upload a draft and then completing it when you have received feedback from other members.

The competition is open to all regardless of their connection to the building sector - be it as an architect, designer, contractor, manufacturer or similar; whether you are a tenant or a landlord in a block of flats or similar.

  • 1. Members' Evaluation Award The idea achieving the best overall evaluation from members (average of all five criteria) will receive DKK 15,000.
  •  2. The Jury's Award - according to criteria The Jury selects one idea from each of the five categories to receive DKK 10,000.
  • 3. The Jury's First Prize The Jury's First Prize of DKK 25,000 will go to the best overall idea.
