In a lively session in London four judges have selected the winner of House of The Year 

The jury session for the WAN House of the Year Award, our most popular and longest running award category, took place on 1st October at Alfred Place close to London’s West End.

In a lively and thought provoking session one of the judges on the day, Kristian Hyde of Hyde + Hyde Architects, said: “What I find incredible about this process is that as we go through the judging our taste gets attuned. The awards aren’t just about awarding the best looking architecture.” 

The judges were looking for architects who have continued to push the creative envelope by designing ever more stylish yet sustainable single-family houses. A balance between innovation, efficiency and functionality with aesthetic rigour was seen as key.

Sticking to the judging criteria was also seen as critical, as was pushing the boundaries. The judges all agreed that they were looking for something that signaled a step change rather than regurgitating ideas and old influences.

The judges particularly liked the projects where they could get a sense of the architect sitting down with the client and working out how they wanted to live. They also agreed that ultimately they were looking for a fully resolved building. 

After much success in previous years, the Winners Exhibition will once again be held at the VOLA showroom in London on the 14th October, so save the date! Please RSVP by the 12th October - space is limited so please respond promptly to ensure attendance - we hope to see you there.
