The RIBA has awarded nine National Awards to buildings outside the UK, but within the European Union, among which was our project on Mount Anville. These schemes were visited and judged by the RIBA Awards Group chaired by Peter Clegg.
“The client wished to rebuild his house in an affluent suburb of Dublin in a vaguely historical style. The architects listened to the client's requirements and came up with a modernist house that also has a feeling of great familiarity and ordered formality. They have made best use of the sun and views, and created three distinct external spaces. They have also detailed the interior beautifully and made an extremely energy-efficient house, with a series of separate rooms each with a different aspect.
The house has a timeless quality. It is as reminiscent of Arts and Crafts as it is of mid 20th century modernism. It is slightly outside of current fashion, and all the better for it.”
