Are you in the process of bringing a vacant property back into use? Join us on April 1st in Cloughjordan to view a 200 year old stone house renovation project, and meet other people who are also undertaking this labour of love.

This is the second of three site-visits organised by the Irish Architecture Foundation aimed at sharing knowledge among those who are bringing vacant properties back into use. Each site visit will be hosted by a property owner who is undertaking their own project and will be followed by a nearby cup of tea and chat. This will be a chance to swap tips, woes (and joys!), and learn from each other.

This site visit will be to Cloughjordan, co. Tipperary. The building is a 3-storey stone terrace house with two shops at ground floor. Previous unsympathetic renovations were removed, and modern features were introduced including a large open plan living/dining room. Building works included a full energy retrofit using healthy building principles, breathable materials and a renewable energy system including ASHP and MVHR.

About the host: Architect Caelan Bristow has been renovating a stone house (c.1800) in Cloughjordan Co. Tipperary since 2018. Caelan studied in London (the Architectural Association) and Los Angeles (SciArc). She has worked in Paris, LA, and New York before moving to Ireland in 1999. After an initial 4 years with Solearth Ecological Architecture, she established her own practice, now based in Cloughjordan.

 

In connection with this site-visit series, the IAF hosted a New Life for Old Buildings session on February 10th in the Science Gallery, Dublin, which explored the potential of our many vacant buildings. You can watch the recording of this event by clicking here.

New Life for Old Buildings is supported by the Department of Housing, Local Government & Heritage.
Irish Architecture Foundation core funders: Arts Council of Ireland; Department of Housing, Local Government & Heritage; and Office of Public Works.
