A BBC News vote to find Britain’s favourite new building has secured another accolade for the Penarth architects Loyn & Co – run by Penarth Civic Society President Chris Loyn.
The building – called “Outhouse” is a “sleek, modernist concrete house built in a rural beauty spot” in the Forest of Dean, Gloucestershire, as a home for two artists.
The house is actually embedded into the side of a hill and is designed to hug the contours of the countryside . The building has already won other awards and was one of six entries for this year’s Riba Stirling Prize .
More than 36,000 votes were received and Outhouse, which was the only private house on the shortlist, was the runaway winner.
