Drumaney Road, Ardboe House
This exposed site is sited within the flat plains of Ardboe. The composition and location of this one room deep linear 2 storey vernacular building with rear return is the result of a thoughtful analysis of the best views from the house, the sun path and the prevailing winds on the site. The Main Entrance is through the gable of the building and under a covered entrance way between the gable of the house and the gable of the 2 storey garage building providing shelter from the elements. It also frees other elevations to be configured to create openings that capture distant views and receive natural sun/day light. The material palette is simple and vernacular: white painted render, slate and natural stone.
The dwelling accommodates a Living/Dining/Kitchen, Lounge, Office/Study, Guest bedroom with en-suite, 3 no. bedrooms (1 no. en-suite), Main Bathroom, Master Bedroom with en-suite and dress area, Utility, Health suite and double garage.
