Designed by the award-winning McGarry Moon Architects, Clogher House is nestled within a rural setting on the outskirts of Lisburn City. The residence is the result of clients who had the vision to remain sensitive to the site location, existing ruins and neighbouring properties
The Dwelling consists of dramatic views and creates a physical connection between the building and its surroundings. It has a restrained appearance, with the texture and colour of the timber cladding and zinc roofing material contrasting with the warmth of the existing stone walls. The integrity of the existing barn is retained whilst hinting to the dynamic design within.
The natural pallet of materials further enhances the local characteristics, whilst the freshness of the white render and glass complement the warmth of the natural stone and untreated western red cedar cladding.
Internally a multi-functional fluid interior creates a dialogue between open-plan areas and more intimate enclosed retreats.
Clogher House was shortlisted for the RIBA Northern Ireland Awards 2017. To find out more read this article in Premier Construction
