Speaking about Montpelier Community Nursery, the judges said: ‘The architects were key to the vision for the nursery which was delivered without compromise and produces an all-encompassing educational experience.

‘The selection of materials was a key part of the success. The black stained Siberian larch cladding allows the nursery to sit inconspicuously in amongst the treescape and contrasts with the white-washed internal timber against which the playful objects to come to life.’

The five other projects that were shortlisted for the prize are:

◾ 25 Tanners Hill (private home and gallery), London by Dow Jones Architects
◾ The Chapel of Saint Albert the Great, Edinburgh, by Simpson & Brown Architects
◾ Church Walk (housing), London by David Mikhail and Annalie Riches
◾ The Filling Station, London by Carmody Groarke
◾ Slip House, London by Carl Turner Architects
