Chair of jury: Robin Nicholson Regional representative: Jonathan Platt Lay assessor: Jane Mann

BLAISE CASTLE CAFÉ CODA Architects Client: Bristol City Council This modest project is a sophisticated exercise in how to design out vandalism by getting a good architect and applying proper resources. It is a model and very popular project, procured outside the straitjacket of council procedures, with an intelligent client which has got what it wanted: an open and free space by day that turns into Fort Knox at night.

£624,000. 150m 2

THE EGG, BATH Haworth Tompkins Client: Theatre Royal Bath This delightful small-scale children's theatre has been inserted, as two thirds of a red egg both in plan and section, into the shell of a former parish hall. The Bath stone exterior has been restored and the remains of the interiors are left untouched. The whole is full of carefully detailed child-centred incident.

£2.3 million. 854m 2

HEELIS Feilden Clegg Bradley Architects Client: The National Trust/Kier Properties Won in a design competition, this striking building is the very antithesis of what one might expect the National Trust to provide for itself.

The beautifully restrained project has more than fullled the client's expectations for 400 initially sceptical but now enthusiastic users and is a model low-energy ofce on a brown field site.

£14.5 million. 7,260m 2
