Two Projects Shortlisted for Architecture Awards

We are delighted to have not one but two (!) projects shortlisted in the category of House Extension Refurbishment in the Building & Architect of the Year Awards 2021.

The Awards recognise architectural excellence in building & design. The Building and Architect of the Year Awards provide a platform for architects and their buildings where the rich variety of architecture encompassing all the main building types, Residential, Public, Commercial and Cultural can be appraised.

The two Wexford projects designed by Isabel Barros Architects and nominated for an award are the ‘Seaview House’ in Kilmore and the ‘Shaolin Cottage’ in Killesk.

The ‘Seaview House’ has a bold timber cladded prolongation that transformed a typical 1970’s Irish bungalow into a modern twenty-first-century vibrant home.

The ‘Shaolin Cottage’ was influenced by Feng Shui principles and includes a unique relationship where new and old work together to create balance and harmony.

The winners of the Building & Architect of the Year Awards 2021 will be announced online on May 20th.
