Ty-Hedfan

December 19, 2011 § Leave a comment

The 2011 RIBA awards included many spectacular pieces of architecture but the Ty-Hedfan house by Featherstone Young perched over a small river in the Brecon Beacons National Park caught my eye. Ty-Hedfan – meaning ‘hovering house’ – cantilevers the main living space over the river bank and amongst the trees, inviting the natural outdoors into the home. Lots of natural local slate and stone materials camouflaging it into the surroundings and an irregular plan give this building an organic and natural feel that I love!
