Stirling 2001 - AJ First Building Award

  • Comment
Stirling 2001

Cedar House

The AJ First Building Award, which was supported by Robin Ellis Design Build, was won by Cedar House, a private house in Perthshire designed by Walker Architecture.

The judges said: '[Mark] Walker's achievement is not simply that he has built himself a beautiful home, but that he has produced a viable prototype that is appropriate for the local landscape and climate and can be easily adapted to suit different needs and tastes. The building has already led to several enquiries locally, suggesting that this contemporary vernacular is likely to catch on in a part of Scotland that has previously tended towards architectural conservatism.'
