The average price of London homes tends to be around £580,000, but British studio OMMX and not-for-profit builder Naked House teamed up to design ultra-affordable houses for first-time homebuyers that start at £150,000.

The affordable housing designs are fairly minimal in terms of what they offer, but there are features that will appeal to young, prospective homeowners. Beyond the reasonable price points, the design of the living spaces will be presented as "shells" that have no internal walls, floors or finishes, which makes it possible for customizations to be made exactly to one's taste.

As Naked House says: "Our model goes back to basics – saving build costs by creating neighbourhoods of genuinely affordable 'naked' homes."
