Yeah there’s a lot of glazing alright but with a view like that and no near neighbours I reckon it’d be ok.
I like the siting and the materials. Its absolutely contemporary but not in an ostentatious way. I reckon thats why it took the public vote.
I didn’t understnad the AAI decision not to award one off houses. Doing this will have zero effect on the number of one offs built in the countryside and passes on a chance to encourage and propagate good, considered designs of these houses. Surely any exposure for houses like this is a good thing.
I get discouraged by the AAI awards anyway, seems more and more to be irrelevant, introverted backslapping. A public vote is a good start to counter this.
