Carraig an Iolair

Carraig an Iolair is located in Barna at the edge of the Connemara Gaeltacht. This semi rural context has informed the design which takes reference from vernacular forms of white walls and slate roofs. The layout of the houses is like a “clachan” to create a sense of community and a sense of place. The house designs have flexible interiors, which are light filled, and facilitate life time adaptability. The L shaped house plans track the sun and create a sense of forecourt on arrival.
