40 Farmhill Road, Cultra

This proposal seeks to provide 3 no. generously appointed dwellings within the curtilage of a large historic estate, whilst also renovating the existing Ardreagh House. Currently, in Planning, the project has undergone extensive public consultation, as well as advice from the Historic Environment Division to ensure this will be a valuable addition to this already high-quality, desirable residential area.

The design intention balances traditional proportions with contemporary detailing, creating a holistic environment between the new and old. The dwellings are appended to the curtilage wall, similar to the historic outbuildings, with lean-to structures hidden from street view. The gable ends are expressed along the curtilage wall to provide a considered visual rhythm along Farmhill Road.
