Blackditch Farm

Newcastle, Co. Wicklow

This courtyard scheme project involved the re-imagining and refurbishment of existing traditional stone farmhouse buildings to provide generous living accommodation, a studio and gallery space all arranged around a brick paved courtyard with a wild flower meadow.
