Grillagh Water

Located on the Banks of the Grillagh River this site for a unique bespoke dwelling is set within Irelands rural countryside adjacent to the historic picturesque Drumlamph Woodland. 

Unlike any other house that has ever been designed and constructed within Ireland, this house takes a completely new approach to rural architecture in the Irish countryside. 

The house is the first modern shipping container construction designed and built in Ireland, with the primary structure made up of four 45ft shipping containers, merged together to form two large daring cantilever forms. The containers are cloaked with a dark grey coloured expanded metal to the top form with a natural corten steel to the lower form. The dwelling’s layout has been cleverly designed to take full advantage of the sites outstanding views to the surrounding picturesque landscape, mountains beyond, historic Drumlamph woodland and nearby Grillagh River.

The overall aesthetics and form of the house is sculptural and marries beautifully into its rural setting.
