The shape of the extension to this house has been inspired by the vernacular farm sheds in the area and sits well beside the existing cottage. However it has been partially clad in zinc, a contemporary material, which is fitting beside the abundant limestone paving of the Burren which can be seen out of the windows of the extension. From the bay window addition there is a view across Galway Bay to Galway City. The project in located near the town of Kinvarra. The zinc cladding has been complete on the extension but the link still needs to be completed. The link will have a growing sedum roof, a material that is also fitting with the karst landscape of the Burren.
