Ballymahon Farmhouse by ODOS Architects, Ireland

“The 450 sqm addition emphasizes elongated rooms with plenty of opportunities to view and connect with the surrounding exterior world.”

This architecture residential restoration and extension project is completed for a farmhouse located in the town of Ballymahon, Ireland and designed by Dublin based ODOS Architects.

The private Ballymahon residence features a refurbishment and extension of the existing farmhouse and stable complex in Longford county Ireland.  The 450 sqm addition emphasizes elongated rooms with plenty of opportunities to view and connect with the surrounding exterior world.  There are striking resemblances of Philip Johnson’s Glass House as this home addition is exposed through the large spans of glass, allowing it to become part of the exterior environment.

Rich, warm wood clads the exterior facade as a high contrast to the surrounding buildings; this makes the home addition a place of interest as you approach the entry.
