At its best, architecture has the power to delight, and this little house delighted the jury as much as any scheme they saw. It is clearly a project of love for the architect owner and their family. The decision to take down and replace their old cottage on the site was obviously a difficult one, but the architect’s thorough analysis of the work, materials and therefore embodied energy that would be needed to stabilise and upgrade the original structure, made a cogent argument for replacement in this case.
