Mimetic House by Dominic Stevens

Located in rural village of Leitrim County in Western Ireland, just outside the town of Dromahair, the Mimetic house is a invisible building cladded in tilted glass that reflects its green surroundings.

Created by architect Dominic Stevens for a pair of the artist couple, this 139 sqm house consist of two parts: a cast-concrete part-buried under ground, and a glass pavilion on upper level, connected by a spiral staircase.

The upper level contains the living and dining spaces, overhangs a hillside, its sharply angled walls reflecting the green grass fields and sky.

Inspiration from architect:

Inspired by a retrospective of the artist Dan Graham, the constantly changing landscape alters the house. A momentary angular deformation of the landscape around it, the house sits in its surroundings like a passing shadow.
