House on a lake

Cooltra Lodge, Cuing More, Pontoon, Co. Mayo

Collaborators;- D.MORAN & ASSOCIATES

Completion 2018


This project represents the extension and renovation of an existing fishing lodge as a holiday home for a client with a long history in the area. (planning)

The site occupies a unique position between Lough Conn and Lough Cullin and offers panoramic views of both. Vistas are used as the main organising tool for this house dictating opes, orientation and organisation of activity of this house. The primary living space is located within the newer modern extension with maximised glazing to offer panoramic views across the lake while the sleeping accommodation is housed in the footprint of the original lodge using height to get into the tree canopy.

Carefully chosen ope sizes, traditional material palette and colour are utilized to allow the house to fit seamlessly into the landscape.
