Meet the shortlist...

East Ham Old Fire Station

The former fire station in East Ham has been reinvented to offer seven affordable homes and a commercial unit while respecting its Grade II listed status. This radical adaptation challenges the notion that heritage preservation comes at a high cost, showcasing that adaptive reuse can fit various budgets.

Originally built in 1913, the building served as a fire station until 1960, later repurposed for council offices when a lot of unsympathetic additions were made. dRMM took on the project in 2016, prioritising low impact interventions and sensitive repairs to meet strict conservation guidelines.

Goldfinch Create & Play

Goldfinch Create & Play in Bristol is the world’s first Passivhaus certified art café. Designed by SEB + FIN Architects, the aim was to create a bright and welcoming environment to nurture wellbeing and creativity through children’s play and craft. 

The building achieved a extremely high level of airtightness, used sustainable and low embodied carbon materials, and high-efficiency sustainable technologies to heat, power, and ventilate the building.

Houlton Secondary School

Houlton School is a 6FE state secondary school and sixth form for the new emerging town of Houlton, just outside Rugby. The school has two distinct parts, the sympathetic repurposing of the solid masonry historic Transmitter buildings, and the high-performance new buildings needed to accommodate the rest of the school.

The school, designed by van Heyningen and Haward Architectscreates a dynamic learning environment for students, while skilfully retaining the building’s industrial scale and grandeur.
