The Landscape Room designed by LID Architecture, located in Sligo’s Yeats’ Country and looks down onto Glencar lake, surrounded by table-top mountains. Plywood joinery- including staircases- was designed for the entire house, which together with the new limestone floor throughout, brings calmness and consistency to the dwelling and helps to maximise space. The room was conceived as a sun-filled space, which can be used as a lounge, reading room, as well as dining- it is connected to the kitchen. A pond in the landscape room takes the rainwater from the roof and draws the eye and mind to a larger garden pond and, beyond it, to the lake itself. The main strategy was to break out from the restrictive form of the existing to create a “Landscape Room”, partly internal, partly external, orientated to the south-west, and surrounded by the landscape.
