Showcasing all home projects featured in this year’s Don’t Move, Improve! competition, this magazine showcases a range of solutions at a variety of budgets, completed within London’s distinct typologies.

London is gifted with one of the most vibrant architecture industries in the world, something increasingly manifested in the day-to-day life of the city.  A slowing housing market paired with higher stamp duty has only increased the demand for these most personal of projects – with talented architects responding to homeowners’ needs in myriad ways to make the most of their space. This annual competition showcases the most innovative, high-quality home improvement projects at a range of budgets – extending outwards, upwards, or downwards – selecting the best of the best to celebrate and inspire with their creativity, cost-effectiveness, contextual design and liveability of space.
In this magazine you will find a feast of architectural inspiration, with projects exploiting any and every opportunity to create much needed high quality living space in this bustling city.
