Howe Farm designed by IPT Architects announced as the Supreme Winner of Surface Design Awards 2016


On Thursday 11 February, Howe Farm designed by IPT Architects was declared the Supreme Winner of the 2016 Surface Design Awards. Howe Farm, designed for a private


client and located in Buckinghamshire is a subtle and unassuming dwelling. It is a practical farmhouse with low visual impact and is in-keeping with its surroundings. The exterior explores the use of simple black stained larch cladding panels in various configurations. This clever arrangement allows the surface of the building to vary from solidity to transparency and in-turn creates ever changing shadows. The judges praised the accomplished


use of material that enhanced the building in its setting, describing the treatment of the roof as artful and with a number of judges proclaiming ‘I want to live there’. The Surface Design Awards recognise


examples of progressive design and the use of innovative surfaces in projects
