forrest house, donegal
The proposed dwelling is a cluster of three linear forms that are strategically designed to integrate sensitively in the wooded site. Each mono-pitch block slides past the other, their locations minimising impact on the tranquil setting.
The timber clad buildings are hidden from view from the public realm and road infrastructure. The site was specifically chosen by the applicant, to be private and integrate sensitively within the applicant’s 40 acre woodland. The footprint of the house sits in a natural clearing on the site to minimise disturbance in the woodland as much as possible.
