Brighton College’s beautiful 70 bedroom boarding house has flint facing into the courtyard, and brick facing out. The simple plan, with a common room at the top, is based on two gabled forms. Knapped flint was cast into the panels; the mortar pointed in situ. The judges said: ‘These elevations offer immense reward, employing subtle imbalances to the symmetry and deft deployment of aluminium sectional detailing to provide crispness.’
