About the competition

The REHVA “The Healthy Homes Design Competition 2022” encourages and challenges students and young professionals working within the field of building and buildings service systems, operation and construction to explore the theme of healthy living – and to create a deeper understanding of indoor environmental qualities as well as exploring the impact of future climate changes. 

The award celebrates and promotes excellence in projects with focus on people’s health and indoor climate solutions in their living environments and at the same time balancing energy use.

The award encourages projects that celebrate the privilege of being a student or young professional; with curiosity and with the willingness to think “out of the box” in the approach to the indoor environmental dimension of future living. 


  • The competition is an open competition in REHVA member countries (see more Who can participate ). The jury will select 3 nominees in two categories.
  • These nominated 6 teams will be invited to come to the CLIMA 2022 conference in Rotterdam, the Netherlands (travel and accommodation paid for two members of the team).
  • The teams will present their projects during the conference. The jury will appoint one winner of each category.


The jury will evaluate the projects in accordance with the following criteria:

  • How the project is researched and documented 
  • How the project addresses contemporary and future challenges 
  • The level of experimentation and innovation 
  • The overall graphic presentation of the project, how the project presents itself 
  • Affordability and replicability, how accessible is the solution compared to available technology and products 
  • For the nominated projects the oral presentation is also included in the criteria.
