Fort House

This design took its form and inspiration from the nearby fort taking into consideration the irregular & organic form, stone angled walls and flat roof formation. Along with the irregular site formation, the concept expressed its forms through a variation of distortions of a rectilinear form. In order to provide the clients accommodation brief, the form of the building became long so to reduce impact, the form was broken into 2 defined forms with differing roof formations in order to decrease impact.

This formation also mirrors the vernacular Irish stone architecture of a barn built and extended adhocly over time. The kink within the plan also has an ulterior motive in providing solar gain to the majority of the dwelling on an east to west axis. This will influence the reduction of carbon footprint and lower energy bills.
