UK schemes named among AR House 2017 award finalists

AR House 2017

A cork-clad home on the Essex coast by Lisa Shell and a black brick ’essay on a new Post-modernism’ in London by Brinkworth have been shortlisted for this year’s AR House awards

The 15 finalists for the internationally renowned accolade run by the AJ’s sister title The Architectural Review include houses in the USA, Venezuela, China, Canada, the Netherlands, Japan, Norway, Spain, Peru, Australia and Chile.

This year’s judging panel included leading British architects Jamie Fobert and Tony Fretton, as well as Christine Murray, editor-in-chief of The Architectural Review and the AJ. Over 250 entries were received from around the world and considered by the judges, who were looking for ingenious and future-leading houses that seek to push the type forward. 

Deputy editor at The Architectural Review, Manon Mollard, said: ’As the one commission that virtually all architects tackle at some stage in their careers, the house is still an important rite of passage for young designers. Offering the potential for genuine innovation, it remains critical to the ferment and crystallisation of new architectural ideas.’

The winner and commended projects will be announced at the end of the month and published in the July/August issue of The Architectural Review.
