Award winning NI house architect
Jane Burnside is a specialist NI house architect. Uniquely all her contemporary houses are designed personally by architect Jane Burnside. Renowned for blending contemporary architecture into landscape settings, she is clear that being contemporary is not the same thing as being faddish. For her, Contemporary design is not about building wacky spaceships. Instead, being contemporary means drawing on a rich history of architectural influences – from Norman forts to labourers’ cottages; Scottish castles to Renaissance villas; and from Irish bawns to Scandinavian eco-houses.
Each new contemporary rural house is carefully sculpted into the landscape to retain mature trees and natural water features. Carefully positioned areas of glazing maximise the views filling the interiors with natural light and visually extending the rooms out on to the terraces and gardens.
Jane Burnside’s latest book, published by Booklink and featuring her practice’s own work, is titled Contemporary Design Secrets: the Art of Building a House in the Countryside and has established her as a leading house architect. It was the Sunday Times’ Pick of the Week.
