House at Carrickcreeney, Cavan. 2003 - 2006.
Our brief was to create, on this evocative lakeside site, an architecturally appropriate dwelling, ergonomically efficient and cognisant of context and typology. Full disabled-accessibility was also required as one of our clients is wheelchair-bound.
Internally, the rational behind the positioning of each pavilion & openings becomes obvious as vistas & light come into the house. The central, grass-roofed hallway, which acts as pivot for the radiating zones, allows for visual control and evokes the shelter of the slope into which the building is nestled.
The house that has been created is a healthy building, full of light, with low ongoing maintenance and low running costs.
