Cong, P House

Residential

New house in protected landscape

This is a new house on a forested site outside the village  of Cong in Co. Galway. The site is sloped, has a southerly aspect & wonderful views. The challenge was to get planning permission & build a home that made the most of the site. The house is cut into & is sited parallel with the contours of the slope. Its form is low and integrated with the ground. The pitched roof is integral to the design. It runs parallel with the slope of the site & reduces the scale. It gives a variety & generosity of height inside. It enables the clerestory window arrangement at its higher side & frames the views at its lower side.
