Maghera, County Derry
This five-bedroom, 3000sq ft storey and a half private dwelling is situated on the Ranaghan Road, with splendid views over the Glenshane area. The house’s contemporary design was complimented perfectly by a simple material palette of natural stone, timber and zinc. All living spaces are located to take advantage of the house’s elevated site location and the sun path to draw natural light into the building. The single-room-deep linear plan format draws references from the traditional Irish vernacular and its feature space, the open plan living area, develops this theme with a double-sided stove addressing the kitchen area and day room/mezzanine study.
