A glistening extension project, the House at Goleen by Niall McLaughlin Architects stands out in the south coast of Ireland.
The chromatic extensions are made from Irish blue limestone commissioned to keep with the cottage's bungalow-style. Architects where inspired by the severe symmetry of the contrasting roof on the existing cottage for the building's extension. They fashioned the addition to bring a modernistic feel with staggered prismatic constructions. These provide enclosed courtyards that provide east-facing views of the scenic countryside landscapes.
Contrasting the existing home's traditional look, the House at Goleen by Niall McLaughlin Architects piece is a sight to see in its own respect. The added blue limestone material becomes highly reflective when wet and adds a reflective nature to the extension that makes for a marvelous vision amidst the Irish greenery.
