Wilson McMullen Architects are delighted to be working closely with C&V Developments Ltd on a significant tourism development adjacent to the start/finish line of the ever popular racing circuit of the NW200 on Ballyreagh Road, Portstewart. Wilson McMullen Architects carried out an initial feasibility study and masterplan for the site to explore the various development opportunities that would ensure high quality and sympathetic design, as well as significant economic investment to the area. This initial masterplan has developed and pre-application discussions with the Council have now taken place, with Ferguson Planningrecently lodging the Proposal of Application Notice (PAN), that officially starts the 12 week planning consultation process. We are now developing the masterplan for the site further and will be looking to take the public’s opinions and any concerns they may have on board, for the detailed design of each of the elements on the site.

Architect Designed Eco Pod Starts on Site

eco-pod-ireland

Wilson McMullen Architects won a competition in 2009 to design a set of Eco Pods or wig-wams in Morocco. While the project in Morocco is on hold, the same client has appointed us to design the first prototype of the wig wam, which has just gone into construction on-site in Auckland, New Zealand.

The timber construction will be clad with recycled / upcycled materials such as corrugated metal, reclaimed timber cladding, reclaimed glazing etc. It will be insulated using sheeps wool and kept warm with a small pot bellied stove.

We are also in development, with the client,  of a hinged pneumatic door , that will provide a great connection with the outdoors as well as providing a sense of enclosure and shelter from sun / rain to a proposed terrace to the front of the pods.
