Slip House wins second RIBA prize

The Slip House in Brixton by Carl Turner Architects has been shortlisted for a second RIBA prize.

The modern new-build house, part of a project aimed at filling a gap in a Brixton Terrace, is one of six projects to be shortlisted for the Stephen Lawrence Prize – an award that celebrates projects with smaller construction budgets.

Earlier this month the £450,000 house was also shortlisted for the Manser Award for best new home design.

Four other projects to have made it to the Stephen Lawrence shortlist are also in London.

They include 25 Tanners Hill, Dow Jones Architects’ conversion of a former bicycle workshop in Deptford into a home and gallery; Church Walk, a housing scheme designed by David Mikhail Architects by Stoke Newington; the Filling Station, a temporary events space and diner created on the Kings Cross redevelopment site by Carmody Groarke; and Montpelier Community Nursery in Camden, designed by AY Architects.

The only project outside London on the shortlist is the Chapel of St Albert the Great, a chapel in the garden of a terraced house in Edinburgh designed by Simpson & Brown Architects.

The winner, who will win a £5,000 prize, will be announced along with the winner of the RIBA Stirling Prize on 26 September.
