Architecture, renovation and art meet in Burke House. Immersed in the stunning countryside of Ireland, a pre-existing building evolves into a modern, lean design. The older house crouches in the front. Two new blocks stretch out in the garden and wrap it within the secret heart of the residence. The result is a wonderful piece of architecture, daringly innovative yet perfectly in harmony with the surrounding landscape.

Yet the distinctive, futuristic look of the façade is, perhaps, what enchants the most about Burke House.
The studio climbs on top of the new staircase, offering a long, meditative sight of the beautiful surroundings.
The living room joins now the dining room and the kitchen into an amazing, larger daytime unit, ideally designed for the demands of a modern lifestyle.
Wooden louvres cover a wall-like glass-window, allowing a manual control on the natural light, and a definitive immersion with the outside.
Interior fixed furniture is carefully combined with the architecture of the space to provide a fully integrated design.
