This wedge-shaped house in Buckinghamshire has been awarded House Of The Year in the prestigious Royal Institute Of British Architects (Riba) awards. Commissioned by Lord Rothschild for use by his family, Flint House rises out of the ground with roofing that disappears into the sky
A beautiful example of respecting the landscape. The greenery is a perfect way to soften a building into its surroundings and the natural tones in the wood create a colour palette well suited to the environment.
It would be a lie to say I only like this because of the timber- I mean look at that copper roof! Lovely and unexpected combination of materials. Community Centre for Evangelical Reformed Church in Würenlos by Menzi Bürgler Architekten
