RIBA names 20 British homes longlisted for the House of the Year 2019


Peter Zumthor’s Secular Retreat, an eco-friendly mews house and a concrete residence informed by Tadao Ando‘s work are among the 20 homes vying to be RIBA House of the Year 2019.

The Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) has released the longlist of 20 projects for the annual award, which celebrates recently completed houses and extensions that represent the best examples of British residential architecture.

The institute revealed the longlist on the same day it announced the winning buildings of the 2019 RIBA National Awards.

Several projects made it on to both of lists, including Peter Zumthor’s Secular Retreat, Cork House by Matthew Barnett Howland, Dido Milne and Oliver Wilton, and Niall McLaughlin’s Hampshire House.

This year’s nominees also include Meloy Architects’ Hill House Passivhaus – a sustainable self-build housing project in East Sussex that meets the optimum low-energy house standards.

Another environment-centred residence is Max Fordham House by Bere Architects that has insulated automatic-shutters to reduce the building’s need for supplementary heating and an interior layout that accommodates the possible change of needs that come with ageing.

Dualchas Architects’ also made the list with its coastal Black House that frames views of the Isle of Skye, alongside James Gorst’s Hannington Farm in Northamptonshire that takes cues from traditional vernacular, but is complete with giant Scandinavian-style chimney stacks.

Other projects vying for the title include House in a Garden by Gianni Botsford Architects, known for its funnel-shaped copper roof.
