House on a Hill, Morphie, Aberdeenshire
This is a seductive and welcoming building which takes maximum advantage from its setting through an architecture of consummate understatement.
RIBA Judges statement 2010
A contemporary addition to an existing traditional cottage the architecture is unassuming and robust. It sits comfortably and confidently in the unfolding history of a site which has been in constant occupation for the past two hundred years, and will now continue to endure and adopt for the inheritance of future generations. The design aims for a good ordinariness. A pragmatic approach driven by the client brief and the opportunities of the site, developed without formal agenda or polemic.
