Last week the Royal Institure of the Architects of Ireland (RIAI) announced the winners of their 2017 Architecture Awards. Celebrating the quality of work done in 2016 by architects in Ireland, they look at all sorts of properties, both commercial and residential. The awards for RIAI House of the Year are the ones we keep an eye out for, and this year, they had two prizes - one for House of the Year and another for Extension of the Year.
They've released pictures of the two winning projects for 2018, as well as a look into the runners up, so pull up a seat, satisfy your nosiness and get some inspiration from the best in the country, if you're thinking about your own build, remodel or renovation!
