 Alison Brooks Architects’ contemporary and imaginative 2 storey extension to an 18th century farmhouse known as ‘House on the Hill’ in Gloucestershire has won the RIBA House of the Year 2021 award.

 

Windward House, the small eighteenth century farmhouse has been transformed in a four-phase programme over 10 years, making it a unique and special place that's both a home and a gallery of Indian and African sculpture.

The two-storey extension, which replaces a large 1970s pool house, contains a central kitchen and dining area, a double-height living room, two bedrooms, an office and a first-floor terrace.
