The jury’s comment: “This house created the most debate and was the most complex to understand, yet at every discovery, revealed deeper and deeper qualities. The interiors were the most impressive feature, being beautifully detailed and finished without lavish materials. In particular the attention to detail at ceiling level where flat surfaces are integrated with vaulted spaces, showed particular sensitivity to the making of living architecture for this home. Then there is its relation to the context, the exploitation of magnificent views and the moulding of the building to its context through the section and through the relationship of natural indigenous materials and those which are manufactured. The response to climate is also very impressive.”
