Studio Spicer Architects was appointed by the property’s neighbours (Stable Drive, Manicou) to design a contemporary, rear extension to a previously re-built barn conversion.  This was to replace an existing, poorly performing summer house.

Early discussions about the proposed, next door development inspired the owners to add their own brief to the project, which included building up to the party-wall line.  Incorporating both adjacent sites into the proposed design and build project was a natural and positive development.

Working to a brief, which mirrored that of its neighbouring site, Stable Drive, Ballykline was designed and built to high-specification standards on a careful budget, featuring a well-detailed and aesthetically pure structure.


The project was completed early 2017.
