We are delighted to announce that our project – Cefn Castell has been nominated for another prestigious award.
After winning the regional RIBA competition for Wales in March, Cefn Castell is now a finalist in the RIBA National Awards given to buildings across the UK recognised as making significant contributions to architecture.
The project which was completed in September last year was featured on Channel 4’s programme – Grand Designs.
Cefn Castell occupies a remote coastal site overlooking Cardigan Bay. It replaces the remains of a cottage, which had existed on this site for 400 years, with a state of the art contemporary house. The cottage is not lost, but used to form the outer walls that frame the house within its relatively modest coast line plot. Accessed via a private secluded, unmarked track, Cefn Castell is in fact quite public, bounded on two sides by the coastal path. This, and its orientation and views, has defined its design approach, and the resulting architectural language.
The winners will be announced on June 18th.
