There was an existing planning permission for a tradition Mews house on this site before we were appointed. We completely redesigned the house before we started on site. The challenge was to redesign the Mews house from the inside out without amending the planning application due to time constraints. Save this picture!© Aisling McCoyThis meant we could not modify the exterior proportions. The original layout allowed for the bedrooms upstairs and kitchen living /dining downstairs. We flipped this to maximise daylight to the living spaces. Inside we used a simple pallet of materials, Reclaimed Dolphins Barn Brick, concrete, Chilean Pine plywood, Concrete & plasterboard. By using subtle level changes we defined different zones within the building without the need to insert additional walls.

In designing this house, we took a lot of inspiration from boats. All the fitted furniture was custom made making use of every square inch of the space, sometimes in some unusual and quirky ways.Save this picture!© Aisling McCoyProject gallerySee allShow lessChilestieg Rümlang / Baumschlager Eberle ArchitektenSelected ProjectsBaan Klang Suan / ForX Design StudioSelected Projects Share Year: CopyAbout this officeDUAOfficeFollowProductsWoodConcreteBrick#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesIrelandPublished on February 28, 2017Cite: “Cratlach Mews House / DUA” 28 Feb 2017.
