Ploughmans Cottage


A small nineteenth century ploughman’s cottage was no longer suitable for the owners who required substantial additional accommodation for their growing family. Our solution involved adding a larger two-storey structure to the east gable of the cottage which resulted in minimal disruption and alteration to the existing house. The design adopts a simple and practical form of classicism traditionally associated with Irish farmhouses relying principally on good proportions and quality natural materials producing modest and civilised buildings which positively enhance the rural environment.
