Gypsy Wood Cottage, Dunnington

Architect: – Bramhall Blenkharn, Malton
Client: Mr Steve Couldwell and Mrs June Couldwell

Judges Comments: York’s rural fringes contain many former agricultural buildings which are now redundant – not only houses but barns and sheds which are part of the country scene. In many cases these make good material for residential conversion but too often this is badly handled, with new work as pastiche and fake “period” details. In this instance, the approach is essentially contemporary, with spaces for 21st century living created. The project is very well planned and benefits from good quality workmanship. The modern aesthetic was achieved without sacrificing sustainability – e.g. by the use of special glass to control solar gain.
