THE LOOK OUT
The Client expressed a desire for an open, airy house maximising the extensive views over the Causeway Coast and Donegal. We responded to the brief with a legible, contemporary house facilitating a free-flowing plan while maintaining the intimacy of a private dwelling. Internal finishes are neutral to create an appropriately low-key background to the panoramic vistas. Thoughtful detailing – notably the bespoke staircase and void above the dining hall – help establish a cohesive architectural language
The external finish is necessarily robust, given the seafront location, but with unobtrusive detailing, combined with limited palette of materials, keeps the external appearance crisp and elegant. The resultant architecture is both sensitive towards its location and unashamedly of its time
"We put a lot of thought into ensuring we had the best possible professional help in the construction of our new house. GM Design managed the process efficiently and effectively, producing a simple, hard-wearing and good-looking building which fully met our requirements and was completed below budget."
