Archie Beck, a Year 3 pupil at Powell’s C of E Primary School in Gloucester Street, Cirencester, took inspiration from the computer game Minecraft to create his bedroom design for a competition run by the developer.

Archie’s design was chosen as the winner and has since been used to decorate a bedroom in a new showhome at The Gateway, Bloor’s development in Cirencester.

Archie and his classmates joined homebuyers and local VIPs for the unveiling of the showhome at a special preview event at The Gateway. 

Paula Gwilliam, Senior Sales Manager for Bloor Homes, said: “We were bowled over by the quality of the children’s designs, and Archie’s Minecraft concept has created a really eye-catching bedroom.

“It was fantastic to welcome our visitors to the showhome for our special preview event and the feedback we received was really positive.

“The Gateway is becoming a really lovely development, offering homes with real character, and I think Archie’s design will inspire many families as they consider what they might like to do with their own children’s bedrooms when they move in.”

Fellow Powell’s pupil William Deakin, also aged eight and from Year 3, won second prize with his seaside theme design, while third prize went to 10-year-old Lucy Attwood, aYear 5 pupil at Chesterton Primary School in Apsley Road, Cirencester, who also chose a seaside theme.

Five homes at The Gateway had already been snapped up ahead of the showhome opening, with the rest expected to sell quickly.

Visitors to The Gateway can tour the new showhome, including Archie’s Minecraft-themed bedroom. The development is located off Siddington Road, Cirencester, GL7 1PQ, and is open daily from 10am to 5pm.
