Three new homes in Suffolk are among five design and build projects in the county shortlisted for the RIBA 2017 Regional Awards.
Every year, some of the most innovative new buildings - from private homes to public and educational buildings, are highlighted in the RIBA Regional Awards.
This year the Royal Institute of British Architects has just released its short-list for the region, 31 projects - whittled down from a record number of 62 entries.
These are some of the best new homes, and new public buildings, in the East Anglian region.
This is the most ever to reach the second stage of judging. Amongst the shortlist is a drawing studio on stilts, the conversion of a derelict windmill into a holiday home, and a number of new housing projdct.
Some are massive, multi-million projects, with the Cambridgeshire list dominated by university and educational projects.
They are being judged alongside much smaller schemes, including individual homes.
There are five projects shortlisted in Suffolk.
Alongside the Vajrasana Buddhist Retreat, Walsham le Willows and Thomas Gainsborough School, Great Cornard there are three amazing new homes.
These are The Windmill at Cockfield and two homes at Aldeburgh, Peacock House and Marsh Hill.
While the Essex finalists include Redshank, the art studio on stilts, and a waterside home, Backwater at Wroxham is in the section from Norfolk.
Our region really does have some beautiful locations.
In Essex, Bracelet Close, Thurrock, by Bell Phillips Architects is shortlisted along with Redshank, by Lisa Shell Architects with Marcus Taylor and The Echoes, in Grays, by Bell Phillips Architects.
