From a beautifully-crafted chapel in the back garden of an Edinburgh townhouse to the yellow-roofed Ferrari Museum in Italy, and from a new 'green' flagship store in Cheshire, to a new visitors center at the Giant's Causeway in Northern Ireland, a total of 52 projects throughout the United Kingdom and European Union are winners of the 2013 RIBA National Awards.

According to RIBA (the Royal Institute of British Architects), one third of this year's UK winners are education buildings. And fewer medium-scale projects won this year, although large- and small-scale projects are well represented. Many of the winners are publicly, charity, or foundation funded, with only one commercial office building in the mix.

Other highlights include the redevelopment of the Brutalist Grade II listed 1960s Park Hill estate in Sheffield, the Newhall Be suburban development of 84 homes in Harlow, and a number of pocket-sized developments on difficult sites in London including the eight large multi-generational homes on Beveridge Mews in Stepney Green, and the highly-detailed private houses at Church Walk in Stoke Newington.
