Gap House wins Manser Medal 2009

The house has won the RIBA Manser Medal for best housing project designed by an architect in the UK, announced at the Stirling Prize dinner on 17.10.09.

Michael Manser, former RIBA president said of the scheme “Once again the Manser Medal has been won by an intelligent, simple, practical, high-quality design that makes most of the housebuilding industry look inadequate.”

Valerie King of sponsors the Rooflight Company said:“Overall the most impressive aspect of the design is its level of skill, imagination and practicality in creating a series of apparently generous spaces, despite all the constraints of overlooking, conservation policies and initially hostile residents association.  The result is a comfortable home in a great piece of architecture.”
