The Mill - Carlow
We opened the building to the outside vistas by widening the window in the kitchen to show views of the river. In addition, we opened a large window on the 1st floor living area onto a locally sourced rustic balcony with stunning views of the fast flowing river. New bi fold doors were installed in the dining room to open the space to a stone patio with planters.
The client liked the idea of contrasting old traditional materials of the building with a modern interior aesthetic.
The design intention for the interiors was to simplify the interior decoration and lead the eye to the main focal point; the views of the surrounding landscape from the house. The pictures in the rooms are the small windows that frame the landscape.
Lighting scheme was designed to accentuate features, create a magical effect at night and light a pathway to a much loved outdoor hot tub!
