Contemporary Pool Building wins RIBA South Award for Architectural Excellence
A contemporary pool building designed by established architectural practice Yiangou Architects LLP is one of three Oxfordshire winners of a RIBA Award in the South Region.
A total of 102 awards have been presented for projects across the UK and Europe ranging from public schools and monuments to museums and private houses.
The pool house, part of a refurbishment of a Grade II listed house in Oxfordshire, incorporates glass, timber and steel to create a structure that floats in the walled garden of the property. RIBA judges described the winning project as a “beautiful floating building that almost disappears” and went on to say that the pool building “has a wonderful, ephemeral quality that is rare in architecture.”
Yiangou Architects LLP will now compete with the other winning buildings for various categories in the Stirling Prize, due to be announced in autumn 2010.
Yiangou Architects LLP has a growing national reputation for design of outstanding quality and is equally at home working with Grade I listed or contemporary buildings. The practice specialises in high quality residential construction using both traditional and contemporary materials.
