Rockwood House, Galway

Rockwood House is an  “A” rated , energy efficient  family home, located in East Galway. The house design responds to a rural context of flat fields, and creates sheltered outdoor spaces and evening sun traps.

A colonnade of steel and timber posts leads to an atrium type entrance hall, around which the family accommodation is arranged. The brief also included integrated but private accommodation for  the grandparents, in a very cost effective and spatially efficient footprint.
