House at Mountnorth

The L-Shaped plan of the house creates a private south facing garden that captures the sun. The positioning of the internal circulation for the house around this garden space was inspired by a visit to the friaries at Kilcrea and Killmallock. A recessed entry porch creates shelter from the elements while creating a transition from exterior to interior. The formal arrangement of the fenestration on the front façade is a design reference to the layout of the fenestration on the classical middle size Irish house. The simple form of house takes its reference from vernacular farm house buildings.
