SURE START TAMWORTH Sjölander da Cruz Architects Client: Sure Start Tamworth Sure Start Tamworth is immediately in front of a 1970s estate plagued by vandalism, truancy, drug-use and anti-social behaviour. While its neighbours shelter behind shutters and barbed wire, this building is transparent and colourful. Its entrance and foyer engage with the surrounding streets and revitalise what was a run-down square in the middle of the estate.

£635,000. 400m

COBTUN HOUSE, WORCESTER Associated Architects Client: Nicholas Worsley Cobtun House emerges seamlessly from the surrounding landscape.

A curved mud and straw ('cob') wall first encloses a series of south-facing sheltered terraces and then, with corrugated-iron roofs and oak-boarded walls, a sequence of beautiful daylit rooms. Each room is a surprise and each space has a fresh view of the landscape.

£255,000. 246m
