The House at Clonakilty is a private residence near Cork in Ireland on the site of an old lifeboat keeper's cottage and boat house. The new house retained and refurbished both of these existing buildings and added a new wing. The roof of the new wing folds out of the ground at the rear and cantilevers dramatically over the beach. TALL also engineered all the glazing, including the large sliding doors.
The House at Clonakilty won the 2005 RIBA Stephen Lawrence Prize for the best building under £1M, a 2005 RIBA European award, a RIAI Award for the best building in the landscape 2005 (details) and was shortlisted for the 2005 European Mies Van Der Rohe Award.
