RIBA AWARDS

Jury Chair - Shane O'Toole Lay Assessor - Graham Anderson Regional Representative - Ciaran Mackel

NEW DWELLING, RANDALSTOWN, ANTRIM Architect: Alan Jones Architects www. jonesarchitects. com The context is a graveyard and chapel, in dark stone and slate. The response was to be ambiguous. From the front, tall narrow windows and lack of detail hardly suggest a dwelling. Internally, there are few defined borders between spaces.

Contract value: £200,000

HOUSE ON BELFAST LOUGH, HOLYWOOD, DOWN Architect: Robinson Patterson Partnership www. robinsonpatterson. com Client: Private The client's main home is a country estate. This coastal retreat was to be the antithesis of the traditional and formal. The modern architectural brief was open, although lifestyle requirements were specific. It is sited on a west-facing hill with a transparent elevation.

Contract value: £1.9 million

DOWLING HOUSE, CULTRA, DOWN Architect: Hackett + Hall www. hackett-hall. com Client: Private Sited in a mature Victorian suburb, the building acts as a deep wall between forecourt and garden. There are framed views to garden trees and to the distant sea.

A 'public' internal stair connects ground and first oor.

'Backstage' a more private stair connects all three oors.

Contract value: £240,000
