Two stunning new houses in Cornwall have won prestigious RIBA South West Awards from the Royal Institute of British Architects.
Near Newquay, a private house called ‘Sand Dunes’ by Bodmin-based architectural practice Arco2 Architecture Sand Dunes is built in a quite staggering beach front location, occupying the entire ‘front row’ of a small community overlooking the sands. The house is naturally focused on the spectacular panoramic coastal views which all primary living spaces face.
Near Feock, the dramatic ‘Owers house’ by John Pardey Architects features a main living space sailing high across the tumbling garden that is the stand-out moment but the jury found much to applaud throughout this architecturally aware and thoughtful house.
RIBA South West Awards recognise examples of innovative and outstanding new architecture within the region. From a shortlist of 16, and 49 initial entries, the 10 award-winning 2016 projects spread from Cornwall to Gloucestershire to Dorset.
