The six-strong shortlist, which celebrates the best house in the UK, includes four RIBA National Award-winning homes – Luker House by Jamie Fobert Architects, Denizen Works’ House No 7, Cliff House by Dualchas, and Lens House by Alison Brooks Architects.
Loyn & Co Architects’ Stormy Castle in Wales, which controversially missed out on a RIBA National Award, has also been joined on the shortlist by Meloy Architects’ seaside home in Hampshire.
Manser Medal 2014 shortlist
RIBA president Stephen Hodder said: ‘The six homes in the running for this year’s Manser Medal are the best of British housing design. With each of the projects, the architects have added real value to the homeowner’s happiness and wellbeing. The originality, ingenuity and innovation on show in this shortlist should be an inspiration for anyone planning to build or make improvements to their own home. I encourage the UK’s volume house builders to look at the shortlisted schemes – we all deserve to live in homes that comfort and delight us.’
This year’s judging panel for the award includes Michael Manser, Patty Hopkins, last year’s winner Carl Turner, RIBA head of awards Tony Chapman, and Robert Hiscox from the sponsor Hiscox.
The winner will be announced at the RIBA Stirling Prize ceremony on 16 October at the RIBA in London.
