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
