The RIBA Manser Medal best New Homes

The RIBA Manser Medal is awarded every year to the best new house designed by an architect in the UK. It was created in 2001 to celebrate excellence in housing design and named to honour architect and former RIBA president Michael Manser CBE.  The winner announced at the RIBA Stirling Prize ceremony on October 6. The long list which has been published includes 23 stunning homes including the ones shown below.

One of my favourites is the Lens House by Alison Brooks Architects. The project involved the remodelling and an extension of a four storey semi­ detached Victorian Villa in the Canonbury Conservation area in London. The brief was to restore the derelict villa and extend it to create a family home and office space for its clients.

Broombank by SOUP Architects is in Suffolk and features a very limited and controlled material palette helping to keep its gorgeous lines discreet within the landscape.

Farningham House Cottage by Emrys Architects is a traditional cottage with a detached outhouse and stable block. The client sought a renovation which unified these disparate buildings into a single dwelling
