This former mid terrace Bank Building has been converted on the ground floor to a modern state of the art optician's surgery and showroom. The linear plan presented many challenges but the client endorsed our contemporary design with innovative lighting and ceiling treatment to transform the space.
A contemporary dwelling in the countryside providing both a working environment and a relaxed home. The mature site provided immediate character and allowed the new house and carport to merge with the landscape. The crucifix shaped floor plan has provided the subtle concept to the house for the local priest and this design in turn allows light to flood the interior.
Location: Esker, Dromore

This vibrant architectural practice provides a complete and unique design service. We pride ourselves in attention to detail and personal involvement in every project by the practice managing director.
Drawing on over 30 years of experience and a passion for creating buildings that are at once bold and unique whilst sensitive to their surrounds and the people who use them.
Emphasis is placed on the orientation of the proposed buildings and drawing on other site constraints to stimulate the design concepts. Historical references can help especially in urban situations while the rural vernacular imagery which surrounds us is a continual influence on our designs.
We strive to work closely with our clients and the surrounding environments to create quality buildings with functional interiors that breathe light.
Our architectural practice continues to grow and develop to reflect technological and constructional changes and have now received accreditation from the Passive Haus Institute as a 'passive' qualified designer. Responding to the pressures of economy and reducing the ecological impact of how we live has become an integral function of the design process. We believe that this approach is the way forward in shaping our built environment with responsibility and sustainability.
