Are you planning a big project in the new year? Then take some inspiration from London’s best extensions and home improvement projects shortlisted for New London Architecture’s ‘Don’t Move, Improve!’ 2017 award.
The 24 shortlisted projects were selected from a list of 120 entries, all of which demonstrate how homeowners can extend above, below and through their homes, creating much needed space for their families.
Small flats in 1960s high-rise blocks, Victorian terraces and Edwardian semis are just some of the building types that make up the eclectic mix of homes featured from across the capital.
With a record number of entries received this year, the annual competition showcases a diverse range of designs, from a kitchen on wheels, to a 25k extension. It comes as no surprise that the award was recently recognised by Dezeen’s inaugural Hot List as one of the world’s most popular design award programmes.
Peter Murray, Chairman of New London Architecture and Chair of the judging panel said: “As London continues to grow we need to make the best use of land in the capital. Home extensions provide an increase in accommodation that is sympathetic to the surrounding neighbourhood, improve the quality of space of older houses and increase their energy performance.”
