The goal of this first-of-its-kind nationwide competition was to select the best plan for redesigning a typical home so that it would enable people to continue living there through every stage of their life.

The winning designs announced today aim to set a precedent and act as a guide to help millions of Americans develop a plan for their home to meet their needs regardless of age or income. The first-place winning design will be incorporated into a Memphis home, which was donated by Wells Fargo in coordination with Home Matters’ on-the-ground partner, United Housing, Inc. (UHI).  In addition, the design challenge partners, including The Home Depot Foundation’s Team Depot volunteers, will contribute to make the improvements.
