Desertmartin, Co. Derry
A traditional Irish cottage style mixed with modern elements.
With a restricted budget, this client wanted to make the most of their money; by designing an efficient house. The circulation space has been designed to a minimum – so the space is concentrated on usable rooms. Each room is designed efficiently, with bedrooms, in particular, not having any unnecessary space. This benefits the family dynamics
We have created a 4 bedroom house, with an open plan space, all within 1800 sq ft.
Aesthetically, the clients had conflicting views on whether they wanted a modern or traditional house. The design therefore has created a compromise; conceptually, the house is a traditional cottage, with a modern living room ‘extension’.
