New house, Raghly, Ireland

Located in an area of special conservation interest, the existing house has become highly derelict. The scheme proposes the removal and replacement of a series of poorly constructed modern additions and the repair and upgrade of the existing house, utilising appropriate conservation techniques. A new living room, located on the footprint of the existing shed, benefits from a corner window that frames a view of the bay and a tall slot window that captures the dramatic profile of Benbulben. Adjacent, a new bedroom wing is connected to the house by a frameless glass roof that introduces south light to the original rooms. The house is passively heated by a geothermal system powered by rooftop photovoltaics.
