Carnathan Lane – Donaghadee House : Northern Irish Architecture

Donaghadee Home, Northern Ireland – design by twenty two over seven

Carnathan Lane Donaghadee

Design: twenty two over seven

Carnathan Lane is a well-balanced and thoughtful plan within a fresh interpretation of a Celtic vernacular. The exterior form retains a memory of the 1970s house that previously stood on the site.

The front elevation makes reference to the architect Baillie-Scott, with the well-placed horizontal windows at ground and first floor. The single-storey elements at the rear – one pitched roof, one flat – create private external garden rooms that reflect the great consideration given to the relationship between the house and its landscape.

The detail is consistent, robust and thoroughly executed throughout the house, from the timber staircase to the bespoke doors and windows and the fine roof to the external rendering. Porcelain stone floors and oak give the house a sense of quality that belies its modest budget.
