AR House 2012 Winners Announced

Winners of The Architectural Review’s Housing Competition 2012 revealed

The private house occupies a unique position both in the history of architecture and human imagination. Beyond its core function of shelter, it is an object of fantasy, a source of delight, a talisman and a testing ground. From Corbusier to Koolhaas, the progress of modern architecture can be tracked through a succession of pioneering individual houses.

AR House recognises innovation and excellence in house design. It is the one commission that virtually all architects tackle at some stage in their careers and is still an important rite of passage for young designers. Regardless of scale, site, programme or budget, the house offers the potential for genuine innovation and it remains critical to the ferment and crystallisation of new architectural ideas.


AR House celebrates this wellspring of creativity with a major award of £10,000 for the best one-off house. Last year’s winner was Architekten Martenson, Nagel und Theissen’s project  - Just K, Zero Energy House, which impressed the jury with its innovative approach to materials, form, context and energy use.
