Hyve Architects make light work of roof window competition
March 4 2019
An Aberdeenshire bothy conversion has been named the winner of the 2018 Velux Roof Window Award following a nationwide contest.
Nether Cowieswells, Crawton, by Hyve Architects saw existing interiors better illuminated and ventilated through the installation of new roof lights within the gable of the original structure.
Former RIBA president Jane Duncan described the conversion as the, “Most simple and elegant of remodelling projects which subtly introduces the wonderful local light through Velux roof windows to enhance the clarity of the spaces.”
Special mentions were given to three further projects from the 130 submissions; Spring Cottage by Covell Matthews Architects; The Steading, also by Hyve and 48 Milverton Road by T2 Architects.
