Haysom Ward Miller's Lochside House in the West Highlands has been named RIBA House of the Year 2018. The annual accolade is given by the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) to the UK’s best new architect-designed house.
The house is formed of three buildings huddled together and clad in burnt Scottish larch, protected by a traditional drystone wall. The house is completely off-grid: all energy comes from the sun and water is pulled up from a borehole. Inside, the rooms are made with a pared-back aesthetic. Walls are lined in white oiled timber, surfaces are skimmed with a rough textured plaster and large windows at varying heights capture stunning views. Inside, the spaces merge with the artist owner's art collection.
