Quilligan Architects

House at Burrow, Rosslare, Co. Wexford

About the project: Set on a quiet road metres from the sea, the house consists of three elements, the main pivot of which is a two-storey element in the centre of the composition. A single-storey pavilion-style timber-clad element is at the right, accessed by steps to a large wrap-around deck. The rear finds a rectangular two-storey piece set back which provides four bedrooms. The style reflects a desire to maintain the essence of the pitched-roof vernacular architecture. This is carried into the low-lying pebble wall which bounds the road at the front. A Canadian cedar hot tub sits on the deck, affording views to the sea inlet beyond, and the main living space is on the first floor, in order to maximise the views and light. The project was completed with the addition of landscape design incorporating indigenous plants and slate pathways.
