House Lessans / McGonigle McGrath

first_imgPhotographs:  Aidan McGrath Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project Save this picture!© Aidan McGrathText description provided by the architects. The site is located in the gently rolling landscape of County Down. An existing assembly of barn and shed with double yard were the remnants of a small farmstead, the original farmhouse now a neighbouring plot. Approached by an overgrown lane, the enclosure created by the buildings and low walls only became apparent when at the yards, the predominant view from the lane being of the drumlins beyond.Save this picture!© Aidan McGrathSave this picture!PlanSave this picture!© Aidan McGrathThe brief was for a simple dwelling to meet the accommodation needs of a semi-retired couple and their children, now only occasional visitors. The connection to place and to the language of the derelict but elegant barn one of a number of defined objectives. Planning permission already existed for a new dwelling on the site.Save this picture!© Aidan McGrathThe house is conceived as 2 simple elements arranged in relation to the retained and re-used barn, to create the enclosure associated with vernacular clusters, and to permit visual and physical connections to the rolling landscape to the south and west. The first element, containing only bedrooms, is positioned to create the sloping arrival yard, and an enclosed space to the rear. The second living element is rotated to address the view. The entrance is positioned between these elements and allows the visitor the experience of both enclosure and landscape.Save this picture!© Aidan McGrathForms and materiality are derived from the language of local corrugated agricultural outbuildings, simple pitched roofs of zinc on masonry walls creating courts and yards, referenced to the datum set by the barn, all rising from an embedded concrete plinth. Internally, generous volumes reflect the existing barn and track the external forms, and views to the landscape are carefully framed. Subtle shifts in level separate the functions.Construction methods were necessarily basic, and detailing is precise and restrained.Save this picture!© Aidan McGrathProject gallerySee allShow lessShiye Art Space / M.A.O.Selected ProjectsArchitecture For Exhibition: Lectures And Internships With International Architectur…Lecture Series Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard House Lessans / McGonigle McGrath Manufacturers: D-Line, The Rooflight Company, VMZINC Products translation missing: ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard “COPY” Year:  “COPY” United Kingdom CopyHouses•Saintfield, United Kingdom Area:  230 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project House Lessans / McGonigle McGrathSave this projectSaveHouse Lessans / McGonigle McGrath Architects: McGonigle McGrath Area Area of this architecture project Photographs Houses Projects 2019 Save this picture!© Aidan McGrath+ 25Curated by Paula Pintos Share ArchDaily CopyAbout this officeMcGonigle McGrathOfficeFollowProductsSteelBrick#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesSaintfieldUnited KingdomPublished on June 10, 2019Cite: “House Lessans / McGonigle McGrath” 10 Jun 2019.
