The Barn Becomes a Home in Ireland

Taking advantage of the old ruins of a barn of stones the architects MCGarry-Moon Architects, Jessica McGarry, Steven Moon & Adam Currie, managed to create a luxurious house and comfortable way of home field, but with a touch of modernity, called “Loughloughan Barn” or Granary Loughloughan.

The Barn Becomes a Home in Ireland

Located in Broughshane in Northern Ireland in the United Kingdom the house was designed in 2013 with 110 m2, designed to harness maximum natural light into the informal spaces integrated and fluid.

The contrast between the base of the barn of stones the heavy and the upper part of the residence is made with lightweight materials like wood and glass or even the coverage in the covers lead to a visual harmonic, with the union of the old and the new.

The new metal structure rests on the old stones, with few points of structural reinforcements, the old windows in the barn are preserved without alteration, on the lower floor are two rooms the main room, and a support, while on the top floor the kitchen and living rooms are integrated in addition to house a master suite with walk-in closet. The volume of steel is projected in the balance sheet allowing a garage under its projection.
