Glenariffe House

Set within the Glens of Antrim on the side of the valley running down to the sea, this house respects the rural architecture of the area while providing an immaculately detailed modern interpretation of a country home with excellent environmental credentials. From the road the massing and white rendered exterior refers directly to the rural vernacular without pastiche.

Beyond the entrance elevation the house terraces down the steep site through single and double height spaces clearly articulated in the external massing. Internally the space flows though the living spaces and the proportion and placement of windows allow stunning views while allowing one to feel contained. With its response to topography and architectural context this is a place of and in the landscape.
