Design Projects

 

Rosses Point

Here is the process involved in the design of a recent planning project located in Rosses Point, Sligo. Its a tight, challenging site in an area of significant heritage which required an innovative solution. The proposal combines the traditional inspiration of the expressed gable with a contemporary, passive solar response.

 

Inspiration

island cottages PART 1

 

We looked to the local vernacular of fishing village cottages for inspiration.

We then morphed this shape to adapt to the restricted site.

We utilized passive solar gain to the southern glazed wall. Importantly the southern glazed facade has a significant roof overhang to provide summer shading. Here are some 3D images that we produced with our BIM software.

The contemporary mono pitch roof of the one storey sun room is precisely angled for solar panel efficiency in Sligo. The proposed deciduous tree offers the sun room partial shade in summer and maximum sun in winter.
