In an unprecedented twist to this year's judging, the panel declined to award an overall winner.
According to the jury, the batch of 12 contenders illustrated a loss of impetus and confidence in the sector. There were two creative sparks meriting commendations - Imperial Wharf and the Orion Building. Both demonstrated 'beautiful' and 'adventurous' design, declared the panel.
IMPERIAL WHARF Architect: Broadway Malyan Housebuilder: St George (Central London)
THE ORION BUILDING Architect: BBLB Architects Housebuilder: Crosby Homes (Special Projects)
