The Future of Renting

Soaring house prices and stagnant wages put the dream of owning a home out of reach for many people, especially the young. Recent reports show that London will become a city of renters by 2025. How are designers responding to the new renting market? ‘Generation rent’ has put up with sub-standard living conditions for far too long. It is imperative that designers, brands and thought leaders are responding to the growing demands of the rental market to create a fairer, more progressive and desirable life for home renters. Speakers will reflect on how the home is being affected by fundamental shifts in the renting market and why product design needs to work harder than ever in rental accommodation to adhere to flexible/fluid living situations.
