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 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 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
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.
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
LISNACURRAN COUNTRY HOUSE
GMA were privileged to work on this beautiful 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!
I was Project architect on the new home for The Royal Scottish National Orchestra. Creation of a new rehearsal hall and 600 seat performance space.
(Work undertaken while working for Glasgow City Council)
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
The initial client brief was to add a kitchen extension and additional bedroom.
We worked closely with the client to reorganise the house to group the private and public spaces, moving the family bathroom to the front of the house allowed us to create an open plan kitchen living space to the rear of the house.
