AMA have recently fended off a host of top names in the world of architecture with their submission for the Self Build on A Shoe String competition, organised by NaCSBA, Grand Designs LIVE and British Gas.

The focus of the AMA submission was ‘Maximum client input, minimum expenditure’ the result of which allowed communities of self builders to create a range of one to five person homes for less than £58k each. Among the shortlist of some top names in the industry, including Sarah Wigglesworth Architects, the AMA design impressed Kevin McCloud and other judges enough to secure third place, beaten only by Jon Broome Architects in second place with the 3-firm collaborative project led by Levit Bernstein taking the win.

Well done to the winners and you can check out the shortlists at
