Mullatee, Carlingford, Co. Louth

Given its rural location, this house was an attempt to find an architectural language that drew from aspects of indigenous farm yard buildings.

Emphasis was placed on the use of rectilinear forms of varying sizes, traditional pitched roofs with no eaves, barrel vaulting and some stone elements.

Capturing view was critical as the location is extremely scenic. The living area is at the highest level in the house and has terracing to the east and west availing of sunlight throughout the day.
