TUATH NA MARA – IRELAND
Architects: MacGabhann Architects
Photography: Dennis Gilbert – VIEW Pictures
Location: Lough Swilly, Co. Donegal, Ireland
This impressive modern design from Irish architects MacGabhann Architects has won several awards including a RIBA Public Choice Award. The building has a striking modern, yet minimal appearance which is perfect in its setting. Both the walls and roof have been clad in black zinc for resilience from the irish weather, with the overall building blending perfectly with the headland, virtually invisible from the surrounding sea. As a holiday home it presents a calm tranquility with a modern twist to its occupants.
