Mimetic House

The clients on this project were looking for a house that would blend into the existing landscape of rural Leitrim and be as sustainable as possible. The Architects answer was to try to make it invisible and to use recycled materials or materials considered to be sustainable as much as possible. The entire structure above ground is timber framed and has no internal columns. The walls on all sides lean outwards at all angle of 10 degrees and contain mirrored glass to reflect the surrounding landscaping – and become invisible. Mimetic House was published in the New York Times in 2009.
