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.
Box Architecture Private House, this project completed by Box Architecture in 2010 . The primary design focus was to upgrade an existing house to modern environmental standards in terms of energy use, ventilation and comfort. The photography sought to exhibit the new design of the house in the best light. The photography was carried out whilst the builders were still completing the building. Much of the work to the external hard landscaping was yet to be complete. However tight cropping of the scene meant that we were able to display a truthful and compelling images of the architecture.
