OutHouse Wins RIBA Stirling Prize 2016 people’s vote

OutHouse in Gloucestershire

A sleek, modernist concrete house built in a rural beauty spot has won a BBC News vote to find readers’ favourite new British building, repors the BBC.

Outhouse, designed by architects Loyn & Co, was built in the Forest of Dean, Gloucestershire, as a home for two artists.

The low-lying, eco-friendly building, embedded in the side of a hill, contains two studios and a gallery-like space as well as living accommodation.

It is one of six buildings also shortlisted for this year’s Riba Stirling Prize, the winner of which will be announced later on Thursday.

More than 36,000 votes were received and Outhouse, which was the only private house on the shortlist, was the runaway winner.

Artists’ partly-subterranean home and studio on a sloping plot in the Forest of Dean.

The Gloucestershire home design by Loyn & Co is the first private house to feature on the RIBA Stirling Prize shortlist for 15 years (The Lawns by Smerin Architects was shortlisted in 2001).

An exemplary concrete house on the Welsh borders, designed for a couple of retired artists, it delights with unexpected spaces, some underground, with a field as the roof.

The architect’s use of light, air and vistas make the absolute most of its sloping site and wide views.
