Concrete Plinth House

DGN Studio

Hackney, 2022

Materiality and Craftsmanship Prize


A series of concrete plinths are embedded into the ground of a Victorian end of terrace house. These plinths stage the solitary and communal activities of a young family, and support the oak frame and steel structure which make up the fabric of the new space.

“The beautiful use of raw materials and simple colours combined with structure as the architectural form in a domestic setting has resulted in a house oozing elegance & warmth.”
