Stanton Williams' Fitzroy Park House has been longlisted for the RIBA House of the Year Award. The prestigious award, previously named the Manser Medal, will be featured in a new Channel 4 programme 'Grand Designs: RIBA House of the Year' starting on the 4th of November. During the programme, which will be aired over 4 weeks, the shortlisted projects will be revealed, and the winner will be announced at the end of the series.
Located in a unique, rural-like setting in the Highgate Conservation area, Fitzroy Park House is a new family home replaced an existing 1950s building on the site. Set back, and surrounded by natural landscape, the new design takes advantage of the sloping site, creating new spaces and managing to be, at once, both protective and open.
