41, Windmill Rise

A bold project that provides contrast and variety while fitting in to an otherwise quite uniform area. A large volume of living space under a steep roof is approached by a bridge over a sunken garden. Unusually, the bedrooms are on a lower floor but privacy is managed by a skilful use of the falling levels on the site. The design makes careful use of modern materials and large areas of glass to create an unusual but striking house.

Architect: Nick Midgley Design
Developer: Mr Michael Hammill, Yorbuild
Presented by: The Sheriff of York, Mr. Alan Deller, RIBA
