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.

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.

Here are some interior shots of the sun soaked open plan kitchen-living-dining area.





The kitchen finishes are yet to be confirmed. Stay tuned for updates.








Saint Brigids

Here is a recent planning application design for an extension to a house in Sligo town. The application was speedily granted with no objections or requests for further information.






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.
