Manser Medal 2012

  • 1 Comment

Chosen from the winners of the RIBA Awards and Regional Awards, these five houses represent the best one-off house designs for 2012

More from: Manser Medal 2012

Over the next 20 pages we present the RIBA 2012 Manser Medal shortlist with a focus on drawings: the plans and sections of the best one-off house designs in the country. The text alongside each project, drawn from the RIBA’s citations, gives a sense why each house struck a chord with the assessors. Unusually this year, each project selected is rural: these are countryside retreats.

The shortlist has been chosen from winning schemes honoured with RIBA Awards in the UK and EU and the RIBA Regional Awards. The winner will be announced on 13 October 2012 at the RIBA Stirling Prize dinner in Manchester, with the winning architect and client receiving trophies designed by the artist Petr Weigl.

Previous winners include Duggan Morris for their house in Hampstead Lane (2011), Acme for Hunsett Mill (2010), Pitman Tozer Architects for The Gap House (2009), Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners for Oxley Woods (2008) and Alison Brooks Architects for the Salt House (2007). This year’s judges include architect Michael Manser, arts patron Jill Ritblat and RIBA head of awards, Tony Chapman.

We wish the shortlisted architects the very best of luck.
