New House, Clifden, Co. Galway
Status: Completed 2006
Located along the Sky Road outside Clifden this house nestles in the hillside looking south into Clifden Harbour. The architectural brief was to design a building which maximized the natural rugged environment along this stretch of coastline, with an appropriate form when viewed from the public road and to frame the natural landscape viewed from the internal spaces looking towards the bay. The house is entered at first floor via a stone bridge and then an internal stairs descends to the principal spaces at the lower level.
