This design for a new contemporary family home, set in the Co. Down countryside, demonstrates both the design quality and the attention to detail for which the practice is known. From the craftsmanship of the stonework to the detailing of the walnut staircase, each element has been considered and contributes to the overall quality and composition of the home.
“The interior spaces created within the dynamic orthogonal plan interweave through mature trees as the walls extend and diminish into the landscape, reinforcing the geometry yet giving a series of private, formal and working external spaces each relating to their internal use. The main external form of the building is derived from the existing open corrugated steel barn, which dominates the existing site. It is this from which manifests itself in the main two–storey element with the zinc clad lean–to roof cantilevering out to embrace and identify the entrance.”
