Castle Hill


Castle Hill, Carlingford, Co. Louth

It's not every day you are asked to design a house incorporating a home cinema but challenge brings out the best in design.

The site was also challenging given that it is steeply sloped and quite confined.

The living areas are placed at first floor to give level access to the west facing garden to the rear. The access to this area via the entrance and stairwell were considered important and as such were conceived as items in which to house the client’s book collection.

A terrace to the north structures the corner of the streetscape and allows view towards ‘King John’s Castle’ (c. 1170).
