St Albans House by Rory Brooks Architects is a simple geometric house. The word simple is not to connotate that the building was amateur or easy. The two square volumes connected by a glassed passage is my favorite architectural element of the home. I like the vertical wood siding that is outside and in. The house is minimal and so well designed. “St Albans House, according to the awards jury, ‘expertly creates a warm interior, while engaging with the qualities of its setting’.
“The jury was particularly impressed by ‘the scale and proportion of interior spaces, the quality of light and the understated timber volumes.”
