Panoramic Room

The brief was for a new room for living and eating in. The client loved the garden and wanted a room to enjoy it in all seasons. A new room was excavated out of the house with the proportions of the golden mean. The south side facing the garden consists of an eight meter long timber sliding screen framed by a deep brick overhang. The overhang protects the indoors from sun and outdoors from rain. The choice of brick matches old local garden walls. A box roof light over the kitchen counter reflects east morning light downwards. A salvaged glass door lets in evening west light. Glazed doors to the hallway admit northerly summer light. Measures adopted to improve the energy efficiency of the building include passive solar gain, external sun shading, envelope insulation and a combination condensing gas boiler.

Seomra Lánléargas

Ba iad na treoracha don togra seo ná seomra nua suí agus ithe a dhéanamh. Thaitin an gairdín go mór leis an gcliant agus bhí sé ag iarraidh seomra ina bhféadfaí sult a bhaint as i ngach séasúr. Rinneadh seomra nua a thochailt de réir choibhnis an chóimheasa órga. Ar an taobh ó dheas ag breathnú amach ar an ngairdín tá scáileán sleamhnáin adhmaid ocht meadar ar fhad laistigh de cholbha domhain brící. Cosnaíonn an colbha an taobh istigh ón ngrian agus an taobh amuigh ón mbáisteach. Úsáidtear na brící céanna is atá le fáil i seanbhallaí gairdín atá le feiceáil go háitiúil. Frithchaitheann an díonfhuinneog chearnógach os cionn chuntar na cistine solas maidine an oirthir anuas. Tagann solas tráthnóna ón iarthar isteach trí dhoras gloine a coinníodh. Scaoiltear solas samhraidh aduaidh trí na doirse gloinithe isteach sa halla. I measc na mbeart a cuireadh i gcrích chun éifeachtacht fuinnimh an fhoirgnimh a fheabhsú baineadh úsáid as téamh éighníomhach gréine, scáthú gréine lasmuigh, oll-insliú agus comhchoire gáis chomhdhlúthaithe.
