Manser Medal 2015 - longlist

RIBA rather slipped this one under the radar in June, but we were delighted to discover this week that after its success at the RIAS awards our Mill conversion project has been placed on the long list of 18 projects for the Manser Medal 2015.

Official press release from RIBA

The Manser Medal is awarded each year to the best new house designed by an Architect in the UK, and represents the pinnacle of house design accolades. The short list will be announced by RIBA on the 3rd September.
