RIBA Manser Medal for the best new house or major extension in the UK in association with HSBC Private Bank, the UK's pre-eminent private housing design award.

Hampstead Lane

Love them or hate them, all too often the base position for mid-20th century houses is renewal and replacement. But here, a self-built structure with compromised spaces has been transformed into a delightful house that truly lifts the spirits.

The character and qualities of the original Brutalist structure remain intact, taking on an altogether different quality when set against the sensitive interventions that define the project. This has largely been achieved by an apparently judicious assessment of which elements of the house should remain intact and in place in order to preserve the integrity and inherent qualities of the original house.

The project has evidently been a labour of love, approached with an appreciation and care for the original house and its history.
