The project creates a contemporary addition to a 1970s bungalow. The extension has been designed to minimise the impact on the adjoining landscape. It consists of a narrow form building which sits into the existing contours on site.
This site specific dwelling in west Donegal is a modern interpretation of the vernacular cluster arrangement of buildings around a courtyard. Roof heights vary, breaking up the form of the dwelling, reducing its visual impact on the confined site.
Due to the size of the original dwelling, there was no need to extend the existing footprint. The works will modernize the elevations and refurbish the interior, bringing functionality to the existing, disjointed layout.
