The house sits on a hillside above a fjord, Carlingford Lough, a deep sea inlet set amidst the dramatic, igneous landscape between the Mourne and Cooley mountains. The local landscape is characterised by distinct and ancient features, cairns, standing stones; and the Cloughmore Stone – a giant glacial erratic. The house takes the form of two narrow pitched roofed elements. The rear block is organised as a bedroom wing while, to the fore, living spaces spread across the block’s frontage to address views over the Lough and mountains through a row of four windows.
