Island Dwelling in Co. Galway, Ireland by O’Neill Architecture

Friday, February 13th, 2015

Article source: O’Neill Architecture

For this building project on the Aran Islands, Co. Galway, we developed the designs from the simplicity of the landscape; working with the given contours, solar orientation and making reference to traditional design. The living area located on the upper level allows spectacular views of the Cliffs of Moher. It is connected to a terrace which is so orientated as to create a sun-trap and catch the sun from late morning until the last of the evening sun rays are obscured by the above lying escarpment. The views from the road are shielded by part of the house, creating the private and sheltered outdoor space. Fortunately the escarpment acts as a wind break for the prevailing westerly winds ensuring great use of this outdoor terrace in most weather conditions.

Article source: Solearth Ecological Architecture 

Airfield is a 35-acre working farm and estate located in the southern suburbs of Dublin, open to the public since 1998; it is an area of pastureland, woodland and walled gardens into which a patchwork of buildings has been introduced focused on Airfield House itself, which was the Over end family home from 1894. Airfield Trust was established in 1974 by the Overend sisters, Letitia and Naomi, as a charitable organisation with an educational and recreational remit provided through an environment connecting people and nature through the farm and gardens. To enhance the visitor experience and expand the facilities at Airfield a number of key spatial drivers have been put in place:

Loug Derg in Nenagh, Ireland by Box Architecture

Thursday, November 15th, 2012

Article source: Gary Mongey

The existing circa. 1940’s cottage situated on an exposed site in Co. Tipperary was in dilapidated condition and was used primarily only at weekends by the client. The intention was to refurbish and extend this cottage to become a functional living environment so the client could greatly increase the quantity and quality of time spent here. The proposal involved the demolition of the existing rear extension and the addition of three new elements, a living block, glazed link and shed.

New modern vernacular arrangements of new and existing buildings.
