The Manser Medal
The Manser Medal is now presented annually in association with the Sunday Times British Homes Awards, with the winner receiving a £5,000 prize fund.
This year’s short-list of six schemes was selected from designs that were highly commended within the three British Homes Awards’ categories for a best One-Off House or Extension:
- up to 2,500 sq ft
- between 2,500 and 5,000 sq ft and
- above 5,000 sq ft
and were visited by the eminent judging panel:
- Michael’s son Jonathan Manser, managing director of The Manser Practice
- Luke Tozer, director of Pitman Tozer Architects, a Manser Medal winner with Gap House in 2010 and
- Lynne Sullivan, Chair of the Good Homes Alliance, Chair RIBA Sustainable Futures, architect and regional and national design review panel member
The stunning classic modernist Outhouse, designed by Loyn & Co Architects, was their choice and a worthy winner of the 2016 Medal.
