BREWHOUSE AND CLARENCE BUILDINGS, ROYAL WILLIAM YARD Acanthus Ferguson Mann Architects with Gilmore Hankey Kirke Client: Urban Splash The genius of the development and its design is the understanding of the scale of the former Navy Victualling Yard built by Sir John Rennie in the 1820s; it realises the essential concept that the accommodation is of a scale appropriate to the building.

Together, the client and the architects have pulled off a highly sophisticated act. £15 million. 16,187m2

THE DEVON GUILD OF CRAFTSMEN Softroom Client: Devon Guild of Craftsmen Chosen through a mini-competition, architect and client have created a stunning gallery in which the ceiling is swept up like a magic carpet to float over the wall defining the courtyard; this is held on the daintiest of stub columns imaginable. The swept roof is planted with sedum into which is set a comfortable timber deck terrace for the cafe.

£500,000. 150m 2
