These 20 projects are in the running to win the UK’s prestigious 2018 RIBA House of the Year awards.

The Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) has announced the longlist for the awards, which are sponsored by Forterra.

Among those in the running includes a derelict former gin distillery in a hidden corner of east London which has been restored into a contemporary family home; a playful black timber-clad house on the outskirts of Belfast that was built for just £100k; and a farm shed on the edge of a North Yorkshire village converted into a ‘part country cottage, part classical villa’.

The RIBA House of the Year is awarded every year to the best new house or house extension designed by an architect in the UK. The shortlist and winner will be announced this autumn.

As we reported this week, Grand Designs: House of the Year has been commissioned for a fourth series on Channel 4 to air later this year, which will see Kevin McCloud, Damion Burrows and Michelle Ogundehin document the detail behind these extraordinary homes.
