The awards have been decided, gongs to be given and it's official. The World Architectural Festival has chosen the Dune House by New Zealand's Fearon Hay Architects as the winner in the Villa category. Nestled in the dunes of a popular beach the home provides shelter and privacy, a raw richness and coastal calm. Interiors are in collaboration with Penny Hay.

This one is by Portuguese architectural firm Studio ARTE as part of their Nomad Living project.
