The Cooperage, a 1900s industrial building, was unsympathetically converted to residential use in the 1990s. The interior has now been cut and crafted to allow light into the glass-roofed dining area. A simple stair links all the complex volumes, including a triple height living space, arriving at the ground floor on a dramatic suspended concrete landing.

The jury was impressed by the engagement of the family with the various spaces, including the large volumes for living, well-considered bedroom layouts, and terraces with rooftop views. The finishes are excellent, with a combination of concrete, black steel and exposed brickwork providing clarity and architectural expression along with warmth and comfort.
