Don't Move, Improve! 2024 submissions open!

Don’t Move, Improve! encourages great design in everyday life, celebrating the newest and most innovative home improvement projects from across London. The annual competition – now celebrating its thirteenth year – showcases the diversity and character of homes being re-designed in London.
From green urban oases to redefining layouts, the projects featured in Don’t Move, Improve! showcase exceptional innovation, creativity and forward-thinking in home improvements across the capital. The variety of projects submitted showcase unique approaches to renovation that consider environmental impact, long-term design that is cost-effective, beautiful detailing and craftsmanship, and much more.

With an annual exhibition, magazine, digital outputs and regular advice sessions with architects, engineers and designers, the programme aims to celebrate London’s best domestic-scale designs and encourage homeowners to embark on their own home improvement projects, discovering architectural practices with whom to do so.
