The Regeneration Award of the East Centric Awards 2016, was awarded to Hertl.Architekten, Austria, for their Garden House, Schloss Lamberg, Austria.  ‘The old farmhouse is a ruin. The remaining outer walls create a large courtyard in which the new concrete volume is inserted. It’s a house‑in‑house concept. Two patios are linked together beneath the small house into one space.’ / /

Z‑LEVEL (Architects), Greece – Maina. ‘A Traditional Rental in Mani, Peloponnese, Greece. The tower‑house is located at Exo Nyfi, an abandoned traditional settlement in Eastern Mani with stone towers. The intention of the design was for a spare renovation of the tower‑house and its conversion into a holiday villa that exuded a primordial spirit of place.’ / /

Ofis Architects, Slovenia – Alpine Barn Apartment, Municipality of Bohinj, Slovenia. ‘The project converts an old barn into a loft apartment by leaving the original exterior appearance intact in contrast with creating a new internal wooden shell. All external wooden cladding and concrete roof slates are maintained, the only interventions are the perforations into wooden parts behind internal windows and opening of the front porch.’ / /
