Stephen Lawrence Prize

The Stephen Lawrence Prize rewards the best projects with a construction budget of less than £1 million

Stephen Lawrence Prize 2016 winner: House of Trace

House of Trace by Tsuruta Architects has been awarded the 2016 Stephen Lawrence Prize. It is a surprising and delightful rethink of the terraced house extension. The play between old and new creates intriguing and playful spatial relationships within the house. The central void, marking the split between the old and new, forms a focal point where living and communal spaces have a direct connection to the sleeping and private spaces upstairs.

The Stephen Lawrence Prize is funded by the Marco Goldschmied Foundation, set up in memory of the teenager who was setting out on the road to becoming an architect before he was murdered in 1993. The prize, which rewards the best examples of projects that have a construction budget of less than £1 million, is intended to encourage fresh talent working with smaller budgets.
