We are pleased to announce that John is heading up the judging panel for the Royal Institute of British Architect’s 2019 House of the Year competition.
Following on from his tenure as part of the RIBA Awards Group between 2015 and 2018, and a long term exponent of high-quality design within the one-off house and housing sector, John brings over 30 years of experience in architecture to this role.
Working alongside the panel of 4 judges including 2018’s winner Tom Miller from HaysomWardMiller, the longlist of twenty recently completed homes or home extensions will be whittled down. These projects are from all corners of the UK, from North Ireland to the Isle of Skye and Isle of Man, towards London and the South-West, ranging in size from 44m2 up to 1500m2. The overall winner will be revealed through a number of programmes as part of a special series of Grand Designs to be televised in the Autumn.
John gave several interviews to both Metro & the Evening Standard.
