PEABODY LOW-COST HOUSING Niall McLaughlin Architects Client: Peabody Housing Association The 12 low-cost, modular timber-frame apartments in east London have two bedrooms and a living room. So far, so conventional, but instead of brick, timber or tiles, these are wrapped in a coloured film, chosen by artist Martin Richman, which produces iridescent shifting patterns like a peacock's feathers.

£1.5 million. 1,200m

NEIGHBOURHOOD NURSERY AND CHILDREN'S CENTRE, HOUNSLOW Cottrell + Vermeulen Architecture Client: NDNA This prototype nursery provides facilities for the under-fives, as well as training for their parents, in a series of colourful prefabricated units under an over-arching roof, which also provides cover for play areas on terraces and internal courts.

£1.3 million. 750m

ST MARY'S GARDEN HALL Terry Pawson Architects Client: St Mary's Parochial Church Council Located in south-west London, the building's simple yet sophisticated geometry is nicely underwritten by juxtaposed planes of white stone, translucent glass and unshowy timber elements. Interiors continue the theme of precise simplicity, with white-plastered walls and partitions.

£496,000. 200m
