Many people dream of commissioning an architect to design their perfect home. It is a commitment that takes time and money, but having a bespoke space built around your specific needs, interests and desires can be life-changing.

So, what makes an award-winning, 21st-century house?

The Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) has been championing outstanding work for over 180 years, and the internationally recognised RIBA awards celebrate the very best in British architecture. The winning houses, featured here, showcase truly innovative design, contemporary materials and techniques, and inspired responses to historical and urban settings, as well as areas of natural beauty. By working closely with clients every step of the way, the architects' extraordinary buildings redefine what 'home' looks like.

This compilation of some of the best RIBA award-winning houses from the last ten years offers an essential source of ideas and inspiration for the contemporary British home. From a sustainable townhouse to a modern cottage, a hillside home to a lakeside escape, these houses are show-stopping examples of architects surpassing their clients' loftiest dreams.

Featuring:

* The best RIBA award-winning houses from the last decade
* Houses from each region of the UK
* A rich variety of projects - from new builds to conversions to extensions
* Case studies from esteemed practices, including: Alison Brooks Architects, Chris Dyson Architects, Foster Lomas, Henning Stummel Architects, Mole Architects and Tonkin Liu
* Guidance for working with architects.
