Revealed: Sunday Times British Homes Awards winners

  • Comment

JTP and Ed Barsley have won The Sunday Times British Homes Awards’ concept design competition for a flood-resistant house

The contest, run in partnership with BRE, NHIC and the Building Centre and backed by the AJ, is part of the British Homes Awards 2016 programme. Called A Home for All Seasons, the victorious scheme was chosen by readers of The Sunday Times’ Home section.

Rebecca Taylor, JTP partner on the design team, said the proposal addressed resilience ‘in a holistic way’ and tackled both physical and socio-economic issues.

She said: ‘As a result our proposal adapts to the inevitable changes throughout the course of the residents’ lives and beyond, while providing protection, comfort and independence through an approach of resilience, rather than resistance, to the very real issue of extreme weather conditions.’

Among the award winners of the built categories, judged by an independent panel led by Robert Adam of ADAM Architecture and including Levitt Bernstein’s Jo McCafferty, were Loyn & Co’s Outhouse (best one-off house,  5,000 sq ft or bigger) and dRMM’s Trafalgar place (Development of the Year of more than 100 homes). Both were RIBA Stirling Prize finalists this year.

Meanwhile Assael Architecture scooped both the best Housing Project category – for its redevelopment of the Royal Academy of Dance – and the coveted Architect of the Year award. It is the third time the AJ100 practice has scooped the accolade since the British Homes Awards, which showcase the best in design to industry and consumer, were set up in 2007. There were also victories for Urban Splash and shedkm with their innovative custom-build hoUSe system and the AJ Small Projects-shortlisted Folds extension by Bureau de Change Architects.

The annual awards, celebrated in a ceremony in London on 14 October, recognise the talent, effort and innovation of architects, designers, housebuilders, developers and affordable housing providers, and celebrate the quality of homes and communities they create. 

The awards were sponsored by Kingspan and presented by Daniel Hopwood, former president of the British Institute of Interior Design, a partner in BBC2’s Great Interior Design Challenge and co-founder of Hopwood Interiors.
