Situated on a hillside above a fjord in Carlingford Lough, the Killowen House is a stone twin farm building as a single family home, overlooking the spectacular landscape views of the Lough and mountain.
The house takes the form of two narrow pitched roofed elements, the rear block is organised as a bedroom wing.
Inspiration from architect:
The local landscape is characterised by distinct and ancient features, cairns, standing stones; and the Cloughmore Stone – a glacial erratic. The house reads as another stone presence embedded in the land – the uniformity of slate roof, and deep walls clad in precisely cut 100mm courses of thick stone (slate) convey permanence.
