There was no overall winner for this category, but two houses made the shortlist: a new house in Moira, Co. Down and Quaker's House, North Crawley, Buckinghamshire. The two buildings are very different. One is a new house on a virgin site, the other a traditionally detailed extension to an existing house.

Quaker's House

Quaker's House is a major extension to an existing building. It has been beautifully built with care and attention to detail, and it sits in a landscaped setting. The jury decided that the nature of the new-build was such that it did not qualify for an award in the single house category.
Architect: Charles Morris
General builder: Ike Whitelock
Brick: Bovingdons Light Multi Handmade

Family House, Moira

Moira is a well-detailed modern house in which the architect has used a palette of carefully chosen materials and investigated the spatial potential of the double-height entrance hall. After deliberation, the jury decided that the predominance of render over brickwork was such that, despite the obvious qualities of the building, it did not qualify for a Brick Award.
Architect: James P. Rooney
Main contractor: McConville McSherry
Structural engineer: Ennis Gruhn
Brick: Marshalls Accrington Nori Smooth
