Tonkin Liu joins House of the Year shortlist

Old Shed New House, Yorkshire by Tonkin Liu

Stephen Lawrence Prize-winning project becomes fourth new home in 2018 fray

Tonkin Liu’s Stephen Lawrence Prize-winning “Old Shed New House” project has become the latest scheme to be shortlisted for RIBA’s 2018 House of the Year Awards.

The North Yorkshire home, which was transformed from a farm shed, was described as “breathtaking” by Stephen Lawrence Prize sponsor Marco Goldschmied last month. Now it is in the running for a second RIBA accolade.

Also added to the House of the Year shortlist this week is Coastal House, by 6a Architects, which is another “reinvention” of an existing building – this time of an early 20th-century house on the South Devon coast.
