RIBA London Building of the Year

Brick House, London | Caruso St John Architects

A house using a limited palette of brick and concrete has won the RIBA London Building of the Year Award 2006. Brick House in West London by Caruso St John utilises a leftover backlands plot at the end of a mews terrace. It beat off competition from twenty-one other award-winning buildings across Greater London to take the overall prize. 

Judges' comments:
This is a brave, intelligent, original study in the use of ordinary materials, developed in both a simple and sculptural way. The warmth and subtlety of the interiors amazed and impressed us; the varying planes and use of light is masterful.
