Tipperary county council have granted planning permission for our design on a infill plot in the town of Ballina beside Killaloe and overlooking Lough Derg. The design took the novel approach of putting the living spaces on the first floor to take maximum advantages of the view of the lake. The design also intelligently modified the contours of the site to ensure that the kitchen and main entrance door would have ground level access. Work is now underway in preparing the project for construction. Above is a photomontage of the proposed house when view from the street.
