House In Oylegate

Area: 176 sq.m.

Year: 2015

Located in the heart of County Wexford in Ireland, the site enjoys beautiful landscape views.

The client’s brief sought a simple residence with lots of natural light and a good connection with the landscape. The farm complex is quite dominant and sits interestingly on a different direction than the original farm house.

The house was carefully designed to respect the site history while introducing a more contemporary volume.

Being aware of its rural location, the house is conceived as two simple volumes that mark each other by carving out a new relationship. The openings are treated as clean incisions that provide optimum views of the surrounding landscape.
