Twin | House 

Location: Nohoval, Cork

Status:    Design & Feasibility Stage


A reconfiguration and refurbishment of an existing two storey farmhouse the proposed design represents a sympathetic but contemporary solution.   The aim was  to transform this  existing dwelling house near Kinsale in Cork into a contemporary family dwelling.   We proposed to retain  the  main structure of the old house and create a double height  family  room  &  mezzanine  library  within it.    A new contemporary dwelling house located to the south of the site is connected to the old house by a glazed link. The new addition becomes a twin of the old as it replicates the scale and porportion of the existing cottage.
