This project involves restoration and alteration to the existing Edwardian house, and the demolition and construction at the rear of a new addition. The transparency and openness of the new part is a deliberate counterpoint to the introverted Edwardian house with its dark central corridor. Our intention was to create an “inside is outside is inside” environment, where inside and outside spaces were interchangeable elements. The project evokes a certain reference to the Farnsworth House by Mies van der Rohe, and many courtyard houses in Melbourne by McGlashan and Everist.Save this picture!© Earl CarterRecommended ProductsDoorsRabel Aluminium SystemsMinimal Sliding Door – Rabel 62 Slim Super ThermalWoodTechnowoodPergola SystemsEnclosures / Double Skin FacadesIsland Exterior FabricatorsCurtain Wall Facade SystemsWindowspanoramah!®ah!38 – FlexibilityThe two mature Elm and Willow became the constraints to the project. They informed the arrangement of our new addition, and together with passive solar orientation the result is a U-shaped plan enclosing a north-facing courtyard.

The concrete floor and roof slabs are meticulously detailed, with significant input from our structural engineer, to appear and feel light, floaty and airy – a dialectic relationship between weight and material. This quality is enhanced by a skeletal structure of “skin and bones”, in which the non load-bearing glass sliding windows become a mere breathing skin between occupants and the outside world.

The link between the old and new is merged into the layering of spaces where inside and outside become one – the transparency of the borders separating interior and exterior allows the eye to perceive other elements that create the spatial order: fences, trees, stones, woods, clouds and borrowed landscape.

The building materials specified are non-toxic and from renewable resources. The concrete structure provides thermal mass to the house with the slabs further insulated to minimise heat loss. All glazing is double-glazed to provide comfort to the interior, and the deciduous trees provide essential shading to the house during summer. Energy and water-saving fittings have been used throughout and rain water is harvested for use in the gardens. A new carport with grid-connect solar power panels is in the design process.

The clients found passion in designing their gardens and their first child was also born during construction. It is a house for enjoyment, living amongst the landscape with family, and the appreciation of tranquillity, intimacy and sanctuary – which were all part of the original brief.Save this picture!© James CoombeProject gallerySee allShow lessShanghai 2010: Almost ready?ArticlesAD Round Up: Shanghai Pavilions Part IVArticles Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/53162/elm-willow-house-architects-eat Clipboard “COPY” Australia Photographs Projects Architects: Architects EAT Area Area of this architecture project ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/53162/elm-willow-house-architects-eat Clipboard Area:  278 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Houses “COPY” CopyHouses•Melbourne, Australia CopyAbout this officeArchitects EATOfficeFollowProductsWoodSteel#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesDabasMelbourneHouses3D ModelingAustraliaPublished on March 17, 2010Cite: “Elm & Willow House / Architects EAT” 17 Mar 2010.

  • DONEGAL PRIESTS’ HILARIOUS ‘SELFIE’ GOES VIRAL ON THE INTERNET

    first_imgGod’s Selfie….RELIGION is a serious business.But that doesn’t mean there isn’t a fun side to it.As this photograph of five Donegal priests has proven in the past few hours. The west Donegal clerics are all hugely popular in their parishes…and perhaps this is why.They know how to have a bit of craic.Certainly Father Brian O Fearraigh, Father Pat Ward and Father Nigel Gallagher are all having a good laugh.We’d never thought we’d see Father Brian making rabbit ears behind a fellow priest. Fr Michael Herrity, PP Anagaire is the priest with the new ‘Rabbit Ears’. And they are joined in the laugh by and Fr. Matt McAnerney who is retired in the Diocese and helps out in Dungloe parish!All good craic!And it’s certainly getting a load of traction online. DONEGAL PRIESTS’ HILARIOUS ‘SELFIE’ GOES VIRAL ON THE INTERNET was last modified: November 14th, 2014 by John2Share this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:Donegal priestspriestsSelfielast_img read more
