This is a new build farmers dwelling situated on a site with fantastic views over County Armagh.
The house has been designed to provide views from all bedrooms and living spaces. The main living room will also benefit from sunlight all day due to its orientation.
Currently on site
This beautiful extension was designed to help reorganise a family home on the outskirts of Hillsborough. Critical to the success of the project was in connecting the house to the garden, this is achieved by stepping the down into the garden room which has a seamless transition out into the garden. The extension is flooded by light by way of the 2.6m high large aluminium glazing panes, which give uninterrupted views from both levels of the house.
The clients ambition was second to none, which allowed for a beautiful pallet of materials.
We are really pleased to announce that the project has been selected to be published in Selfbuild Magazines Spring edition.
LISNACURRAN COUNTRY HOUSE
GMA were privileged to work on this beautiful award winning guest house set just outside of Hillsborough village.
We were asked to obtain planning permission for extending the accommodation and providing a flexible function space below.
We explored many options during the development of the plan, and glad to say we managed to maintain the exiting mature trees on site.
The guest house is finished to a very high standard, I highly recommend a visit.
This project brief was to reinvigorate a large house and garden into a well-designed family home. The focus of the design was to make the kitchen the heart of the home, as modern family living revolves around it.
Critical to the success of the project was in connecting the house to the garden, which the split level extension achieves.
Due on site mid to late 2016
Private Dwelling 01
GMA were privileged to be invited to give a disused listed building a new lease of life, converting from a residential property to an office.
It was a pleasure to work with a client keen on restoring the building to its former glory, all the while restoring damage inflicted from years of neglect on this beautiful period property.
We required to gain both planning permission and listed Building Consent. Working closely with Historic Environment Division of Northern Ireland, we careful restored the damaged internals of the building to their former glory.
Completion Late 2015
GMA were privileged to be asked to redevelop a small family bungalow into a house capable of accommodating an older family member.
We developed a scheme which provided new bedrooms and a shower room into a converted attic, with the addition of a new kitchen extension offering fantastic views of Lisburn.
Planning obtained- Due on site early 2016
BOYS & GIRLS
GMA assisted Marc Kilkenny Architecture on the detailed design of Boys and Girls advertising agency.
It was a great collaboration with a very creative office.
We really enjoyed detailing the stepped library and slide.
The project recently won a Glasgow Institute of Architects (GIA) Award
The initial client brief was to add a kitchen extension.
Once involved we developed a scheme to maximise the daylight to the living spaces. We reorganised the ground floor of the house, adding a separate utility space and extended kitchen dining room. This also involved the demolition of the existing garage which blocked light to the rear of the house, and the creation of a new parking area out with the garden.
