Architect-led visit to view The County Down Barn, with Micah T Jones (architect)

Special Prizes:

  • House of the Year

About: A rural family home bringing together high precision cross laminated timber construction and a stone wall base.

Judges said: 

  • This project near Ballygowan highlights that it does not take a big budget to produce a special house.
  • Through its simple rectangular shape it minimises the surface area, reduces heat loss and keeps construction costs down.
  • The design responds thoughtfully to the local landscape of sloping drumlins.
  • It was the view of the panel that through outstanding craftsmanship and invention the architects have created a beautiful, functional, hospitable and engaging home.
