Building: 007 House
Architect: BGA Ltd.
Building Type:Private House
It is said the most important part in designing and building your own home is the relationship between the client and the architect. With BGA this relationship couldn’t have gone better.
Capturing the original brief, understanding the clients and developing concepts to arrive at that magical combination between originality, great context to the surroundings, practicality, ease of construction and excitement that only great design has, is what BGA excelled at in this project.
The design concept of an eye looking out of the hillside over the lough is what made sense to the site. Making that eye out of light materials, sympathethic to the wooded context and then rooting that solidly into the hillside with the lower concrete structure developed that concept to perfection. Internally, the house is designed to be practical, liveable in by a family rather than just a showhouse. Importantly also, the upper, living areas also connect seamlessly to the outside spaces thanks to the extensive glazing.
Being able then to translate that design with the aid of their selected structural engineer into a detailed construction plan and then guiding us through the tender and later the build process, we found John and everyone at BGA a pleasure to work with. Arguably it was in the build phase that BGA proved their greatest value. The fact that it mattered to them to create and finish what we have now is what sets them apart from other architects.
