HOLLY BARN, REEDHAM Knox Bhavan Architects Client: Alan & Jenny Rogers This beautiful house sits on a slight rise and takes advantage of typical Broadland scenery.
The living area is primarily on the first floor behind large sliding screens which allow the summer to enter the space. It is fresh in detail, with well-integrated special-access features for its disabled owner.
GIRTON COLLEGE LIBRARY AND ARCHIVE Allies and Morrison Client: Girton College This is an extremely difficult piece of integration into a Neo-Gothic setting, providing additional library facilities, and it has been carried out in an uncompromisingly Modern style. The work respects the existing library while managing to create a beautiful courtyard by using the side of the chapel. The quality of light is extraordinary.
