The British Home Awards was established on the premise that good design needs to be highlighted and championed.
New properties frequently follow a cookie-cutter design strategy, and this year’s Home Awards celebrate the exact opposite approach, with designs that respond to their sites and their future occupants.
The entire range of UK residential developments was represented, from restoration of historic buildings and one-off homes to placemaking and bigger-scale urban development. Traditional categories represent diverse markers, including build to rent, affordable rented, and first-time buyer. New categories have also been added to broaden the recognition and reach of the awards.
Included in the awards ceremony is the Manser Medal, which recognises excellence in one-off design. This year’s winner was the Coombe Park house by Eldridge London in southwest London. The panel, which personally visited shortlisted designs, praised the property for its immaculate detailing and unique connection with its sculpted garden.
