Ty Pren House in Wales

March 15, 2012

London-based architects Feilden Fowles were inspired by the austere chapels and vernacular buildings in Wales in their design for the Ty Pren House, built on the edge of a national park.

Located near the Brecon Beacons National Park, which overlooks the highest peak in South Wales, Ty Pren was built for Gavin and Vina Hogg, environmentalists who aspired to create a sustainable dwelling inspired by the Welsh vernacular. To see more of the firm’s work, go to Feiden Fowles.
