UK architect wins television programme and donates prize fund to homelessness charity

Director of Allan Joyce Architects, Allan Joyce, has won television programme May The Best House Win and donated his winnings to homelessness charity Framework. The ITV show, aired in the UK, sees four contestants view each other’s homes and score them secretly, with the winner receiving a prize of £1,000.

Joyce was the winner of his episode and has since handed over his prize to Framework which provides housing, support, training, care, resettlement and employment to homeless people in the area of Nottingham, UK.

Joyce explains: “I have been involved in many projects with Framework for more than ten years and I am a great admirer of its work. Any one of us could find ourselves threatened with homelessness or in other difficult situations, so I am pleased to be donating my winnings to such a worthwhile cause.” The ‘garden’ aspect of Joyce’s home won favour with his competitors with its highly sustainable features.
