Don’t Move, Improve! 2017 Winners

The Sunken Bath Project by Studio 304 Architecture has been crowned overall winner of the ‘Don’t Move, Improve!’ 2017 awards, praised for its compelling design that created a new feature bathroom that cleverly extends from a terraced house - producing a unique and personal solution to London living.

Celebrating innovative, unique and personal solutions to London living, the winners of this year’s Don’t Move, Improve! competition join a prestigious line up of past winners, including Carl Turner Architects, Platform 5 Architects, Studio Octopi and Ben Adams Architects

Set up seven years ago, the competition promotes the value of good design to householders and the work of emerging architectural practices, and has recently been recognised by Dezeen’s inaugural Hot List as one of the world’s most popular design awards programmes.

Selected from a record number of entries, the following nine schemes were praised by an expert jury for their attention to detail and liveability.
