Peter Oakes Architects highlight the qualities of great architecture and great architects. This project in a seaside village outside Dublin. It adapts an Edwardian house to the needs of its owners. The house was converted to meet universal design standards. The design is so skilful that is not apparent that the house is design for universal access. The project was an inspiring to see. The choice of colours in the interiors and on the external steelwork brings life to the building. Why is this great architecture? To me the mark of great architecture is its ability to contribute to enjoyment of life and living. This building, such a simple renovation, greatly contributes to the lives of the owners. The mastery of the building is that the design is unpretentious and inspiring at the same time.
