ARCHITECT magazine's Deane Madsen and Angie Cook share 33 renovation projects that have been shortlisted for the 2016 edition of the Don't Move, Improve! Awards from New London Architecture (NLA). The list celebrates extensions and renovations made to existing homes.
Many of the homes, all located in London, sit in conservation areas, and had to be updated with extra care and sensitivity. The projects will be displayed at the NLA's London gallery within The Building Centre from January through March. Winners will be announced on January 21.
The jury for the 2016 Don't Move, Improve! competition included Peter Murray, chairman of NLA; Russ Edwards, design director of Pocket Living; Kay Hughes, principle of Khaa; Dickon Robinson, ahousing consultant; Philippa Stockley, a journalist, editor, and critic specialising in architecture and design; Pia Benham, head of collections for Heal's; Tamsie Thompson, director of RIBA London; and Amy Frearson, architecture editor of Dezeen.
