Seaside House

Often when I take a walk along Termonfeckin beach in Co. Louth I've spotted this house, but until recently never knew anything about it. Then I stumbled upon it while taking a look at the shortlist for the Public Choice Award as part of this year's Irish Architecture Awards, and it turns out it's by Dublin-based A2 Architects. At first glance, it's pretty different to everything else along the seaside (mainly mobile homes and dormer bungalows), but when you take a little time with it, you begin to see that its long rectangular shape and horizontal panelling borrows a little bit from the caravans on either side, while still maintaining quite a unique character and slick feel. And by the looks of the images below, the views of the interior are as nice as the views it has across the sea. Well worth consideration for a vote in the awards...
