AR Awards House Winner: David Chipperfield Architects - Fayland House
For all the international recognition that David Chipperfield Architects has enjoyed over the course of its more than three decades of practice, the firm’s homeland has proved a notably less than generous source of patronage.Happily, recent years have shown signs that British clients are finally waking up to the firm’s talents, but the tally of its UK buildings remains modest. All the more surprising then is the fact that two of their number are to be found just five miles apart in the depths of the English Home Counties, an area of the country hardly renowned for its sympathy for modern architecture. A concern with context and history has continued to inform the practice's work and is much in evidence in its latest building,Fayland House.
