WHEATFIELD COURTYARD David McDowell Client: Private Two existing stone buildings near Dublin have been converted.
They are linked by a glass, cedar and steel box. The lightness of the new structures contrasts well with the mass of the existing stone buildings.
HOUSE AT CLONAIKILTY Niall McLaughlin Architects Client: Edward Fitzmaurice A disused lighthouse-keeper's cottage in the Irish Republic has become a bedroom, and the former boathouse has been converted into guest bedrooms. An extension for living/dining room responds to shards of metamorphic rock.
LEWIS GLUCKSMAN GALLERY O'Donnell + Tuomey Client: University College Cork The architecture of this building in the Irish Republic is full of contradictions: it uses everyday materials but appears luxurious. It occupies a tiny footprint but has a Tardis-like quality inside. It looks astonishingly good.
