Tonkin Liu wins Stephen Lawrence Prize 2018

Old Shed New House, Yorkshire by Tonkin Liu

Special mention for Arboreal memorial

Tonkin Liu has won the 2018 Stephen Lawrence Prize for its transformation of a farm shed into a home.

The Old Shed New House project in North Yorkshire was described as “breathtaking” by Marco Goldschmied, the founder of the prize for projects with a budget of less than £1m.

The judges also gave a special mention to Arboreal for the Bethnal Green Memorial to the 173 people who were crushed to death on the steps of the Tube station during a Second World War air-raid panic.
