A contemporary house meets gallery on the beach, a Japanese-inspired terraced house extension, a new family home springing from the granite walls of an older building, and a cliff-hanging house are some of the projects that the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) has named to its longlist for the 2016 RIBA House of the Year, the U.K.’s most prestigious award for a new house or extension.

Judges for this year’s awards include Meredith Bowles, founder of Cambridge, England-based Mole Architects (jury chair); Charlotte Skene Catling, co-founder of Skene Catling de la Peña; Jonathan Dallas, director at London-based Dallas Pierce Quintero; Philip Thorn, head of Direct Home for Hiscox; and Jenny Éclair, novelist, actress, and client of the 2005 award-winning house.

Past winners have included a stone barn, a home with translucent glass walls and a flint-laden house. Take a look at this year's longlist
