What are you most looking forward to about judging this year's British Homes Awards and, as a judge, what are you looking for in the work?

I'm looking forward to seeing the best of British residential design with projects that elevate everyday domestic life to exceptional spaces that offer meaningful change to their users and to future generations. I will be looking for projects that consider their wider context including the physical environment, as well as the context of the climate emergency and how the home might be future-proofed to address changing climates.
