The Stones shortlisted for the Manser Medal – AJ House of the Year

The Stones has been shortlisted for the Manser Medal – AJ House of the Year. The long-standing prize, which recognises the best completed house in the UK and was named after the renowned British architect, former RIBA president and Royal Academician Michael Manser (1929-2016) – became part of the AJ Architecture Awards this year.

Adjacent to sand dunes in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty between Dungeness and Greatstone-on-Sea, CZWG’s design for a simple and enduring beachfront family dwelling was inspired by the immediate landscape and views of the chalk cliffs and sea beyond.

Of the eight finalists, the eclectic mix of one-off homes ranges from a concrete and brick new-build on a farm in West Sussex to a house in south London with a Gothic-inspired roof.

“The shortlist for the Manser Medal – AJ House of the Year is a powerful list of unusual and creative schemes,” says AJ editor Emily Booth. “These houses reference architectural history in a compelling way, and yet are strikingly contemporary in their use of materials. They pack a punch.” Read full article.
