RIBA House of the Year Award 2015

Flint House on the Waddesdon Estate is a domestic house. Its stepped linear monolith seems to be pulled from the landscape as a geological extrusion of infinite age. The flint-faced walls fade in six coloured strata from black through shades of grey to white appearing to dissolve into the sky.

Created by architect Charlotte Skene Catling, of Skene Catling de la Peña Architects, as a contemporary house, the interiors were designed by David Mlinaric.
