Trailer porch wins Small Projects

  • Comment
news -

An extension to a trailer home in rural Alabama has won the AJ Small Projects Award 2004. Designed by Cambridge graduate Lucy Begg on a year out with Rural Studio and local student Robie Gay, the timber porch was built on a disused trailer chassis at a cost of £3,600.

All materials were available from the local hardware store - as well as dimensional lumber, these included corrugated metal roofing and mesh insect screens, spray painted in strong colours. In addition to designing the project, Begg and Gay played a major part in its construction.

A house designed by Simon Conder on Dungeness Beach in Kent was highly commended.

AJ Small Projects is sponsored by RobinEllis design and construction. The judges were: Robin Ellis; AJ editor Isabel Allen; architects Sadie Morgan of de Rijke Marsh Morgan and Philip Gumuchdjian;

structural engineer Jane Wernick; cost consultant Kevin Bonfield of Boyden and Co; and Rob Wilson of the RIBA.

All projects will be on exhibition at the RIBA in London from Tuesday 23 March to Saturday 24 April, and later in the year at Interbuild and at 100% Design. To see all the entries, go to www. ajplus. co. uk/smallprojects
