Innisfree

The competition brief was to design an installation for Innisfree Island inspired by WB Yeats' poem, "The Lake Isle of Innisfree". The project was initiated to commemorate the 150th anniversary of the poet's birth. Our response has been to imagine a place that fosters those feelings of peace and sanctuary so beautifully evoked in the lines of the poem. Visitors gather on a raised platform prior to entering into the cabin. Internally, an oculus in the ceiling allows light from above to gently illuminate the space. From within the cabin the picturesque lake setting is framed by the entrance opening. A bespoke table acts as a focus point within the space but also as a lectern referencing the project's literary inspiration. The structure consists of a steel frame, a timber deck, a rammed earth floor, wattle walls and a canvas and tar roof.

Innisfree

B'é an mionteagasc don chomórtas ná suiteáil a dhearadh ar Oiléan Inis Fraoigh a thóg inspioráid ón dán "The Lake Isle of Insfree"le W.B. Yeats. Spreagadh an tionscadail chun an 150ú comóradh bliana ó rugadh an file a cheilliúradh. B'é ár fhreagra ná áit a shamhlú a chothaíonn na mothúcháin síochána agus tearmainn a dhúisítear chomh galánta sin i línte an dáin. Baiíonn cuairteoirí ar ardán sul a théann siad isteach sa chábán. Laistigh, soilsíonn díonléas an spás go séimh. ón taobh istigh den chábán tá an loch álainn frámaithe ag oscailt iontrála. Bíonn bord leithleach mar phointe fócáis laistigh den spás agus é mar léachtán ag déanamh tagairt d' inspioráid liteartha an tionscadail chomh maith. Tá an structúr déanta as fráma cruach, deic adhmaid, urlár láibe, ballaí caolaigh agus díon tarra agus canbháis.
