2012 Best House Award for House at Bogwest

  • Larkin, Steve (Recipient)

    Prize: Prize (including medals and awards)


    House at Bogwest was awarded Best House in the 2012 RIAI Architecture Awards. RIAI citation "This is an essay on the possibilities of the individual house in the landscape. It establishes a walled garden enjoyed and accessed by the bedrooms at the lower level. The floor above is then freed to create a complex dialogue between the release of views outward over the land and the introvertive pleasures of volume, enclosure and diffuse rooflight. Opes are tellingly formed and positioned. Materials are of superb quality, immaculately detailed and constructed." Jury of architects including Eddie Conroy, Fionnuala May, Orla Fitz.Gerald, Orla Murphy, Paul Dillion and Stephen Best.
