RIBA reveals longlist for 2018 House of the Year

  • Comment

A former gin distillery by Open Practice Architecture and Tonkin Liu’s cube-like farm shed conversion in North Yorkshire have been named on the longlist for the 2018 RIBA House of the Year Award

The 20-strong list also features FAMILY’s black timber-clad house on the outskirts of Belfast built for just £100,000 and two houses by Miller Partnership Architects built side-by-side in Newcastle-upon-Tyne.

Other projects vying for the coveted title include VEX, an eye-catching curved concrete home in east London by Chance de Silva and The Red House by 31/44 Architects in south London.

Winners of the RIBA national awards announced today (21 June), also made the cut, including 6a Architects’ Coastal House scheme in Cornwall, Caroline Place in London by Amin Taha and Groupwork and Lochside House in Scotland by HaysomWardMiller Architects

Two winning projects from the RIBA regional awards, Duncan Cottage by James Grayley Architects and Shropshire Residence by Gregory Phillips Architects, also join the longlist together with regional shortlisters Pheasants by Sarah Griffiths + Amin Taha; Berkshire House by Gregory Phillips Architects; Black House by AR Design Studio and Oatlands Close by SOUP Architects.

Schemes by AY Architects; Carmody Groarke; Liddcoat & Goldhill and Harrison Brookes Architects complete the longlist.

The RIBA House of the Year is described by the institute as ‘the UK’s most prestigious award for a new house or extension’.

Last year the RIBA House of the Year was won by Caring Wood in Kent – a collaborative project by James Macdonald Wright and Niall Maxwell.
