The Red House (2)

I’m so pleased to read that David Kohn’s Red House in rural Dorset has won the RIBA House of the Year Award. I went to visit it in early October on a damp grey day and greatly admired its quirky, but robust individuality which I have written about in this month’s The Critic. It seemed to me to offer a good model of clients determining to do something a bit out of the ordinary, including making the whole thing disabled accessible in spite of the fact that they are still in their fifties.

At the time, I was discouraged from publishing any photographs of it, in order to maintain its privacy, but now that it has appeared on Grand Designs, perhaps I might be allowed to post them in celebration of its win ?
