Blending traditional rural vernacular with contemporary architecture.

Traditional form and materials for rural context | REQA Architect Design | New bespoke house rural residential | Drumaghdone Road Dromore
Finished in 2006, this new build private home situated between Banbridge and Dromore allowed us to explore the fusion of traditional rural forms with contemporary design features. The project is an evolution of the property from four agricultural buildings that lay here before it. The redevelopment seeks to re-purpose the site to create a home that is grounded in its location.
 
The rectilinear pitched blocks sit perpendicular to one and other and face the quiet country road. Differentiating the public and private aspects of the house was carefully designed. The windows and door styles facing the public side are considered in the context of the traditional rural vernacular. Meanwhile, a contemporary approach is applied to the south-facing elevation. The expanse of glazing overlooks the private garden creating a seamless flow between the inside and out.
 
The building material palette is modest and contextual. Rough textures are chosen to complement the setting, allowing the building to sit in harmony with its landscape.
