Text description provided by the architects. This 250sq.m family home and office were designed to nestle into the side of a hill overlooking Clifden Bay in Connemara in the west of Ireland. The house is set into the side of the low hill; like nearby outcrops of rock, the grounded heavy forms are inspired by limpet shells, coastal defenses and stone piers. The battered limestone cladding is positioned at the exposed corners to give some sense of resistance to the salty southwesterly prevailing winds while larch timber cladding and pillars set up a simple rhythm with the glazing. The low grey irregular roof form echoes the erratic rock outcrops in the surrounding landscape.
