An architect and engineer owned project, creating a family home adaptable over time, in a rugged landscape. Using offsite construction of timber frame, clad with a ventilated façade of Cedral boards and Baumit render. The 270mm walls and roof are pumped with Cellulose (recycled newspaper) to provide excellent insulation, acoustics and a low carbon home. Concealed gutters and a limited palate of materials create a strong architectural form. The house makes the most of light, landscape and volume, connecting to framed views and outside spaces.
Building Owners – Gemma Ginty & Cian O’Donnchadha
Tours at 12pm & 2pm.
Location: Coilleach, an Spidéal, Co. na Gaillimhe, H91 H77F
