At Home in Gubbeen, West Cork

Schull, Co. Cork

An existing farm building was extended and rebuilt to accommodate this contemporary dwelling overlooking Roaring Water Bay. The stone to the farm building was cleaned and re-laid as the wall cladding to the ground floor, with a small band of smooth plaster between the stone and the eaves. Roof finishes comprised natural slate to the main roof, and zinc to the entrance porch and utility rooms. High insulation, air-to-water heat pump with underfloor heating, as well as a large array of photovoltaic solar panels make this house extremely efficient and sustainable for the owners. Mature trees surrounding the house were retained as much as possible allowing the house to immediately fit into its surroundings.

Having viewed their website, we liked their approach to design and so decided to appoint FMP Architects to design and project manage our new house near Schull, Co. Cork. We developed the brief for the design together, going through all our wants and needs. We felt that they listened to us and designed a wonderful house that exceeded our expectations. They were most helpful through a complicated planning process and excelled through the tender and construction stages. Overall, we were very happy with FMP and would highly recommend them in the future.
