  • Aillebreac Ballyconnelly Co. Galway, H71 RK00 Ireland (map)

In Connemara, the expulsion of cattle and division of the house into rooms are recent events. Oral tradition relates the former byre end divided from the kitchen by a partition for a bedroom. The plan of this house on holiday is a twelve metres square, economical speculation. Four dry limestone walls coursed on an expressed polished concrete slab prescribe a hipped and slated gazebo and avoid the small politics of front and back. Teach adhuain. The bedrooms are cabins under the loft. Each elevation shifts between the room and the landscape of a casual suburbia.
