The panel of judges who shortlisted the finalists for the RIBA Stirling Prize defined the project by the architectural firm Niall McLaughlin Architects as a brilliant piece of urban design, a building which exudes care and makes the ordinary exceptional.

The architectural firm Niall McLaughlin Architects designed a low cost apartment building, Darbishire Place, for Peabody Housing. The site is where a former mansion stood until it was destroyed in the WWII bombings. 
The project was shortlisted amongst the finalists for the RIBA Stirling Prize 2015 and its refined proportions and details were particularly admired by the panel of judges who defined it as a brilliant piece of urban design, a building which exudes care and makes the ordinary exceptional.
The new construction completes the square and the gap in an important architectural hub, integrating into the setting created by the existing buildings not by imitating their style but thanks to an attentive choice of materials and the design techniques used. 
Above all, the care put into the planning is seen in the details such as the graceful curves of the pure white flights of internal stairs and lead coloured banister, flooded with natural sunlight coming from skylights.
