Seventeen exceptional new homes form the longlist for the RIBA Manser Medal 2011 for the best new house or major extension in the UK in association with HSBC Private Bank, the UK’s pre-eminent private housing design award.
From small urban homes squeezed into tight city sites to woodland hideaways and dramatic beachfront villas, the 2011 longlist reveals some of the most cutting-edge trends in housing design and lifestyle choices and recognises some of the UK’s most talented architects.

Ruth Reed, RIBA President, said:
“The best new private homes are those designed by an architect to meet the client’s personal needs and aspirations and add real value to the homeowner’s life and happiness.
“This year’s longlist for the RIBA Manser Medal in association with HSBC Private Bank recognises some truly exceptional and exciting private houses, with projects located in the farthest reaches of the UK. On the Hebridean Isle of Coll and on the shingle shore of Dungeness young architects have brought old buildings back to life as new homes. In Brecon and Suffolk architects have created exceptionally daring houses with cantilevered floors and structural tricks aplenty. The results – our longlist -are breathtaking, and should lead to the best ever shortlist.”
Declan Sheehan, Chief Executive Officer of HSBC Private Bank, said:
“Our sponsorship of the RIBA Manser Medal reflects our support of excellence in architecture and design, as this year’s longlist highlights the exceptional talent and creative expertise in the UK at present. In our second year of sponsorship HSBC Private Bank is proud to support an award that sees architects and clients working together to create inspirational homes.”
