A local architect has scooped a Welsh Architecture Award for his work on creating an office at his home in Felindre.

Niall Maxwell, who designs buildings across the UK, has won plaudits for New Barn.

Awards chairman Robert Firth said: "New Barn is the latest in a

series of carefully considered buildings at his home in

Carmarthenshire. It may only be a small building with

limited space, but it is meticulously planned and detailed."

New Barn won both a Welsh Architecture

Award and Welsh Small Project of the year for 2014.
