House at Church Lane

Spread across the ground floor, the design complements the existing limestone walls on the site, part of the original Church complex which is adjacent to the site. The ground floor is envisioned as a set of heavy stone walls which create a series of landscaped courtyard spaces and extends the built edge of Church Lane. It is proposed to clad the building with a natural or man-made slate finish, with timber windows and screens, and planted green sedum roofs. The two storey section of the building is designed as a predominantly transparent box which reduces its impact on the site while providing views of the adjacent church and beyond.

Location: Midleton, Co. Cork.

Status: Planning Granted
