Last week, RIBA announced the first two homes shortlisted for this year's House of the Year Award: Antsy Plum by Coppin Dockray and Outhouse by Loyn & Co Architects. Antsy Plum is a 1960s modernist house located in Antsy, Wiltshire, renovated to reduce carbon emissions by 80 percent; Outhouse, located in Forest of Dean, Gloucestershire, is a partly subterranean concrete structure on a sloped site.

Since 2001, the RIBA House of the Year Award has recognized the best new house designed by a UK architect annually and is sponsored by Hiscox Home Insurance and Paint and Paper Library. RIBA plans to name seven houses in total to its shortlist and name the 2016 House of the Year on December 15.
