Rental homes offering reduced rent for artists and the redevelopment of a former sheet-metal workshop into nine flats are competing to win the prestigious RIBA Sterling Prize.
The properties are among the six that have made the shortlist for the Royal Institute of British Architects' prize.
The annual award is for excellence in architecture and is given to the UK's best new building.
RIBA President Muyiwa Oki said: 'The 2023 Stirling Prize shortlist illustrates why architecture matters to all of us.
'These six remarkable buildings offer thoughtful, creative responses to the really complex challenges we're facing today.
'Whether it's tackling loneliness, building communities, or preserving our heritage, these projects lay out bold blueprints for purposeful architecture.
'Amid a backdrop of housing shortages, growing inequality, and economic uncertainties, this year's shortlist demonstrates that well-designed buildings can offer genuinely inspiring solutions to our most pressing problems.'
