Tom Miller, HaysomWardMiller Architects: 2018 winner (Lochside House)
Tom studied architecture at the University of Cambridge, qualifying in 1996. He worked initially for David Lea in North Wales, a practice that specialised in combining low energy design and sustainable materials with a thoughtful and humane modernism.
Tom returned to Cambridge and established Haysom Ward Miller Architects (with Patrick Ward and Rowan Haysom) in 2005. He has taught at the University of Cambridge and contributed to books on both David Lea and MH Baillie Scott and writes an occasional column in the Financial Times.
Haysom Ward Miller Architects won the 2018 RIBA House of the Year for Lochside House, which the judges described as "an example of humble, grounded, contextual yet powerful architecture that people can aspire to and be inspired by."
