The site is situated in one of the most beautiful coastal views in Ireland. The site sits on top of a cliff overlooking the north sea and the beach stretching out below to the west. The coastline and head land of Donegal are in the background.
The house was designed to appear from the sea as a black stone slit above the cliff on the sea shore. The house is designed as a half curve with views from all the rooms out over the sea.
Sunlight is brought into the centre of the house by means of a sunken internal paved court yard with full height glazing along the curved facade of the house
