A house on the White Cliffs of Dover has won an architectural award.
Ness Point, at St Margaret’s-at-Cliffs, was one of 11 in Kent and Sussex to win a Royal Institute of British Architects regional prize.
It was for architectural excellence and given at a ceremony at Ascot Racecourse, hosted by journalist and broadcaster Rosie Millard.
The 360 square metre Ness Point, designed by the firm Tonkin Liu, was completed just last August.
Judges in their citation said that it had been “designed as if it had grown out of the land in which it is embedded.”
They added: “It hunkers into the hill and is at one with the dramatic landscape of the White Cliffs of Dover.”
The panel also said that moving through the house made you feel that you were skirting along the side of a cliff face.
The judges added that every inch of the property is put to good use and each bedroom has a balcony no wider than half a metre, which gives the effect of a miniature, personalised garden to each.
Other winners at this ceremony included Hastings Pier and Brighton College Music School.
