A self build ‘greenhouse’ built on a very tight budget has won the annual House of the Year Award by the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA).

The five-bedroom family home in Tottenham, London, was described as “an inspiring example of what can be achieved with a creative and ambitious approach to design”.
