GIA: 26m2    
Cost per m2: £1,433

A 40ft shipping container turned architect’s studio cantilevers over the banks of the Grillagh River, known to locals as Pixies Paradise. Irish vernacular corrugated tin gets a modern gold powder coat. Picture windows at each end make the studio feel large and airy while taking full advantage of the outstanding views of  mountains, woodland and river. The dramatic overhang maximises space on the restricted site. In contrast to the rugged external materials the polished interior is entirely clad in birch ply and has a resin concrete floor.
