Lisglass Road, Ballyclare
Construction of a new-build dwelling on a green-field site, located on a hill-top location. The client had a previous background in construction, and undertook the project as a self-build using trades appointed directly, and self co-ordinating the work. The design included a circular stair-tower with a conical roof, a circular end-bay on the adjacent kitchen sunroom, and two changes in level at ground and first floor level, with curved interior walls within the entrance hallway adding interest to the interior plan. The dwelling was traditionally constructed using insulated cavity blockwork, sloping ceiling insulation, pre-cast concrete slabs at first floor level, and underfloor heating throughout.
