We are extremely pleased that RIBA has recognised:

"There is interesting complexity in the shape, form and layout but it feels effortless in its realisation. This house is a delight.

A record of 17 winners were announced at a ceremony at Fitzwilliam College, Cambridge, on Thursday 18 May attended by both Platform 5 Architects Directors, Peter Allen and Patrick Michell, and our client Claire McKeown.

All the winners will be put forward for the RIBA National Awards, with the recipients announced in July. Those collecting national awards will then be considered for the 2017 RIBA Stirling Prize.
