Stone 'Hobbit House' Wins Award

Updated:2008-07-17 09:34:26

Archer & Buchanan Architecture Ltd. was selected by the American Institute of Architects (AIA) as one of the 15 recipients of the 2008 Small Project Awards. This award program emphasizes the merit of small-project design; the translation of best disciplinary practices, advancements and elements into current projects and processes; and strives to raise public awareness of the value that architects bring to any project, regardless of budget, size or scope.

The winning submission, Hobbit House, was built for an avid and serious collector of J.R.R. Tolkien books, manuscripts and artifacts. The client desired the construction of a home for a Hobbit, with a design based on Tolkien's writings and imagery. Located in the countryside near Philadelphia, Pa., this cottage was built for the display and archives of the owner's valuable Tolkien collection. The structure's stone was taken from a derelict portion of an existing 18th-century dry stacked fieldstone wall running through the property.
