The internationally renowned American Architect Richard Meier has designed his first ever UK house in the rolling Oxfordshire hills. It has now won a prestigious RIBA award.

What has been achieved is a house of exceptional, enduring quality and detail, which we observed was clearly enjoyed by the users.”
